Pope’s honey is a family farming enterprise based in Port Lincoln. South Australia. Norm and Val started on their honey path with Norm’s first bees in Port Lincoln in 1979. Norm had developed an interest in bees in his childhood, which became a passion and a career, he left electrical contracting in 1985 to become a commercial Apiarist.
This has developed into a keen interest in, and knowledge of, the local flora in the lower Eyre Peninsula. He spent many hours talking and travelling through the bush with several older beekeepers. While things have changed, he gained invaluable wealth of knowledge from these old timers in particular Cyril Lear and Clive Stephens now deceased. Our business complies with Australian food standards
