Glass House Mountains “Honeyman”
Meet Dave Erbacher the Glass House Mountains “Honeyman”. Dave breeds bees and sell honey at his roadside farm stall outside his home along the Sahara Road, in the Glass House Mountains.
Like all local honey Dave’s honey is seasonal which means may tastes lightly different or looks lighter in summer and darker in winter, because of what the bees feed on during the different seasons. Local or ‘natural honey” also crystallise over time and tastes absolutely gorgeous in any season.
In Dave’s own words:
I’m a local beekeeper, I have hives in Glasshouse Mountains and Beerwah and I get enough honey from those hives to sell on this street stall in Glasshouse. Its local it’s pure it varies during the year.
Macadamia nuts are flowering at moment so the next lot batch of honey will be lighter in colour, the honey I am selling that the moment is Eucalyptus, it’s a winter honey and darker and goes candy in the winter, which only pure honey will do.
The nice thing about Dave is you can drop of a Jar and he will measure and weight the correct amount of honey into it and charge accordingly.
Speaking with Dave, I he explained that he and chosen to settle in the Glasshouse country after coming up from Melbourne a few years ago.
To find Dave just drive down or up Sahara Road in Glasshouse and you will find Dave’s “local honey” sign towards the lower end of Sahara Rd, (eastern) closest to Glass House Township.
