Island Beehive

Kangaroo Island

The Kangaroo Island Ligurian Bee Co is a family owned and operated business based in Kingscote on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. It was established by Peter Davis in 2001 as one of the first organic honey producers. Peter’s passion wasn’t restricted to just producing honey, he has always been keen to share his knowledge about beekeeping, to educate the community and visitors about the different varieties of honey and ways to protect the Ligurian bees on Kangaroo Island.

Originally called Island Beehive, the facility at Kingscote produces up to 90 tonnes of honey each year. Over 800 hives are moved around Kangaroo Island according to the flora and seasons.

In 2020, Peter’s son Brenton and his partner Verity purchased the business, with the aim to take their unique honey and stories to more people in more countries around the world.
