About Us

Justin's a fourth generation beekeeper. Conducting a hive inspection.

Bumpstead Family Apiaries was founded in Kinglake, Australia, by Justin Bumpstead, a fourth generation beekeeper.

Bees are critical to our survival as humans. One mouthful of food in every three we take is due to the pollination provided by bees. Unfortunately due to pesticides, disease, and certain farming methods bees face an uncertain future.

We support these important pollinators by setting up apiaries around Melbourne and Victoria, offering a Rental Hive service, selling bees, honey and beeswax products, and most importantly promoting the important job that these little insects do in supporting human life.

Our local honey and beeswax products are packaged and sold at local markets and online.
