Beelieve Honey: Buzzworthy Gem at Milton Markets

From its humble beginnings in post-war Romania to Israel to Australia, where its presence at the bustling Milton Markets is making quite a buzz, Beelieve Honey has captivated generations of honey enthusiasts across different continents.

Beelieve Honey’s story began in 1947, when the current owner’s grandfather in Romania discovered his passion for beekeeping. With unwavering commitment, the old man embarked on a journey of nurturing and harvesting honey. 

Sixteen years after he started his beekeeping adventure, driven by a quest for new beginnings, he and his family relocated to Israel, bringing along their treasured beekeeping traditions.

Over four decades after that, the family decided to embark on yet another ambitious relocation, this time migrating to Australia in 2007. They settled in the idyllic Sunshine Coast, where they found fertile lands to cultivate their hives.

Whilst some of their hives remained in their newfound home, Beelieve Honey extended their presence to Woodford in Queensland, ensuring that the honey produced would embody the diverse flavours of the varied regions.

What sets them apart from the rest is their commitment to preserving the essence of pure, raw honey. Utilising a cold extraction process and employing gentle filtration methods, they ensure that every jar of honey retains its natural nutrients and flavours.

From their humble beginnings in Romania to their current standing as a beloved presence in various markets, Beelieve Honey has continually shared the sweetest of nature’s bounties with a loyal and appreciative audience. 

Apart from the Milton Markets, you can explore their diverse offerings at the West End Markets, the Saturday Fresh Market in Rocklea, and the Redcliffe Markets.

Assessment Paused for Planned Dining Precinct Across Milton Markets

Assessment for the planned dining precinct across Milton Markets has been paused until the end of the year per the developer’s request.

Clare Cribb Pty Ltd through Urban Strategies Pty Ltd filed for notice to stop the current period for DA A005900846 in May 2022. The project was supposed to revitalise an industrial precinct into a food and drink outlet with shops and potential accommodation.  

In early March, severe weather and flooding battered Milton, prompting extended closures for many businesses and other services.

Currently, a warehouse and commercial carpark occupy one building, whilst the other buildings include a gym and a motor mechanic. If the project pushes through, parts of the building containing the gym will be demolished. The rest of the structure will be refurbished and extended.

The developers’ vision is to turn the block along 32-40 Cribb St, across the popular Milton Markets, into a “gastronomic precinct” that will have a “microbrewery, craft distillery, food hall (including a series of ‘micro-restaurants’), restaurant and rooftop bar, all situated around landscaped, terrace dining.”

The site will also have a rooftop deck, garden terrace dining and private laneway. The design will be cohesive and integrated to co-exist with the neighbouring areas that include a residential development. 

The Cribb St has existing development approval from 2016 for a residential tower that has yet to start construction.

“The proposal will contribute to the mix of uses within the precinct, and by becoming a pedestrianised hospitality hub, will capitalise on the precincts’ transit opportunities,” the planners stated.
