Fewster’s Farm Honey – August 2022 News
Welcome to the August issue of our Newsletter!
From the Bee Keeper…
Throughout August the days are starting to get a bit longer and Queen egg production is slowly increasing, the brood nest growing and this results in the colony growing. It is still important not to disturb the hives, so we only check the hives from the outside and ensure we keep the hive entrance free from grass, weeds, and other obstacles.
A note about recent news articles on the varroa parasite found in hives in the eastern states of Australia. Authorities have introduced several biosecurity measures to limit the outbreak including ‘bee lockdowns’ banning the movement of bees across state lines. Western Australia’s strict biosecurity laws ensure our state remains free of the outbreak.
World Honey Bee Day is an awareness day when beekeepers, beekeeping clubs and associations, and honey bee enthusiasts celebrate honey bees and recognise their contribution to humans’ everyday lives as a means of protecting this critical species.
The day recognises both the honey bee and the beekeepers who tend the hives. It also encourages everyone to enjoy and buy locally-made honey.
Fewster’s Farm specialises in producing high-quality Jarrah honey harvested directly from the pristine ancient Jarrah forests of Western Australia. Our entire product range of is 100% free from any chemicals or pesticides.

Transfer mixture to prepared pan and press firmly into base and side (approx. 3cm up the sides). Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven. Set aside to cool. Reduce oven to 170C/150C fan forced. Clean and dry food processor.
Place cream cheese, crème fraîche, vanilla and honey in the food processor and process until just combined. Scrape down sides with a spatula. Add eggs and lemon juice. Process until just combined and smooth. Pause to scrape down sides with spatula, if needed.
Pour the mixture over the crust. Bake for 55 minutes or until almost set (cheesecake should still have a slight wobble in the centre). Turn off oven and leave to cool in
