From our Family to Yours

Hampson Honey is a family-owned small business driven by a sincere devotion to our team, collaborators, and the planet. Our honey is harvested with care, earning the trust and affection of Australians for our honey products.

Carl & Karin Hampson are the team behind Hampson Honey. What began as a hobby in 2009, gradually evolved into our passion and life mission.

Meet Carl

Carl Hampson’s affinity for farming was evident from a young age. As a child, he cultivated vegetables in his backyard and sold them to neighbours. His fascination with bees began when a friend, whose father was a beekeeper, introduced him to these intriguing insects. Acquiring his first backyard beehive in 2009 marked the genesis of his hobby, which swiftly blossomed into a full-fledged passion, culminating in the establishment of Hampson Honey in 2012.

Carl meticulously seeks out pristine environments to accommodate his bees. His guiding principle, “look after the bees and they will look after us,” permeates every facet of their family business. Each decision is guided by the question, “what is best for the bees?” At times, it involves prioritising the bees’ needs over harvesting honey or relocating them to new forests. Carl’s unwavering dedication ensures the well-being of his bees, who reciprocate with the production of exceptional honey for Hampson Honey.

Meet Karin

Karin Hampson, affectionately known as the “honey lady,” assumes responsibility in Carl’s absence and is the proud mother of three energetic boys. While she shares Carl’s fondness for bees, she prefers to steer clear of beehives to avoid the stings. She does love honey though!

Surprisingly, Karin wasn’t always a honey fan. Prior to producing their own, she found store-bought honey unappealing. Initially hesitant about backyard beekeeping, her perspective shifted after savouring natural raw honey. Not only did honey become a staple in their family’s diet, but also ignited her passion for making authentic honey accessible to all.

Carl and Karin jointly established Hampson Honey with a vision to make Australians and the world fall inlove with honey again – raw, 100% A-grade Australian honeythe way honey should be.
