The House of Honey and The Sticky Spoon Café
The House of Honey and the Sticky Spoon Café is located in the heart of the Swan Valley and opened in January 2010. It is the latest taste sensation.
Beekeeper Rupert Phillips has been keeping bees for some 41 years- a passion which has followed him around the globe. Rupert’s wife Kim shares this passion- together they travel far and wide in Western Australia to harvest and showcase some of the best honey this state has to offer.
The beehives are moved at night to different locations depending upon availability of nectar- mostly pristine native bushland populated by our many different Eucalyptus species. Each of these floral species have their own unique flavour- all of which are available for tasting. Some of these honeys lend themselves to further infusions- such as Lavender, Chilli, Cinnamon, Vanilla and Truffle - which further tempt the taste buds.
As seasons vary from year to year, so do the flavours and availability of honeys. A very dry year may produce a more dense honey (usually in the height of summer) while a spring honey may be lighter in both flavour and texture. Honeys gathered in the cooler months usually crystallize or “candy” more readily than the summer honeys. This natural process does not mean that the honey is inedible; it merely means that the honey is pure and unheated with the goodness and nutrients intact.
We look forward to your visit and encourage you to taste our delicious honeys. Our shop showcases all things honey and bee related from pollen, royal jelly, candles to beauty products and giftware. See our live bee display where our friendly staff will explain all about the world of bees or relax in our cafe with our famous Devonshire tea.

All tours are fully guided by one of the owners of the business, ensuring that all guests are personally introduced wherever possible and they are there to share their knowledge and stories of the region. Paul and Shannon apply their local insider knowledge to ensure every tour is thoughtfully crafted to give each guest the best possible experience, each and every day - sometimes this means access to experiences that are not available to the general public.
