Miellerie Honey is based in Margate, in Channel District of Southern Tasmania. Since 2006, Miellerie has developed from working 40 hives to 160 hives all over Tasmania and now produces 5 different varieties of honey: Leatherwood, Lake Pedder's Nectar, Prickly Box, Blue Gum and Tea Tree (Manuka)

Apiarist Yves Ginat began beekeeping as a teenager, growing up in central France, in the medieval capital, Bourges. His mother's family was from Bretagne, and his father's family from Berry. Yves extended his education into organic farming before moving into commercial beekeeping in 1998 and moving to Tasmania. It was November 2005 that the Miellerie business began.

Yves nurtures the bee community using organic and biodynamic beekeeping practices to maintain health and harmony from the hive to the jar. Essential to the integrity of Miellerie is their trade practice of cold extraction of the honey from the comb to harness the vitality, aroma, flavour, colour and texture of the delightful nectars from Tasmanian native floras.

Miellerie Honey is sold principally in Tasmania (Wursthaus Kitchen and City Organics in Hobart) but also through many outlets in Melbourne (Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder and Passionfood), Sydney (Wholefoods House and Victoires) and in other regional areas.

Adding to Miellerie's success are 6 awards received in 2008:
- Best New Product: Lake Pedders Nectar - Vogue Entertainment & Travel Produce Awards 2008
- High Commendation: Lake Pedders Nectar - Vogue Entertainment & Travel Produce Awards 2008
- Gold: Leatherwood - Sydney Royal Fine Food Show 2008
- Silver: Lake Pedders Nectar - Sydney Royal Fine Food Show 2008
- Gold: Lake Pedders Nectar - Royal Tasmanian Agricultural Show 2008
- Silver: Leatherwood - Royal Tasmanian Agricultural Show 2008

Another highlight for Miellerie has been the production of, The Passionate Apprentices. This was filmed and directed by Tasmanian film maker Roger Scholes, telling the story of three different artisans and their apprentices: The Lonely Knife Maker, The Beekeepers Daughter and The Baker's Sons. Following an extremely successful premiere and subsequent viewings at the State Theatre in Hobart 2008, the three episodes were presented on SBS in June 2008 which became the most viewed documentary for SBS in Australia for that year.

As the seasons change, Yves continues to explore the floral diversity of this beautiful island, Tasmania.

Please note Meillerie is not open to the public, honey products available through good retail outlets.
