“Our honey is simply the best,” shed member John Renfrew said.

“All the different types of gums in the area is what gives the local honey its unique taste.”

Visitors will also be able to see how a flow hive operates and purchase hand-crafted bee boxes, local honey and wax.

“We have made about 100 boxes so far from materials sourced from local suppliers,” shed member Gary Haynes said.

“We have had lots of fun making them and it has aided building a lot new skills.”

The Men’s Shed is one of 12 stops along the Spring Food Trail which aims to showcase the quality and diversity of region’s produce.

Visitors will also be able to taste organic water buffalo mozzarella at Burraduc Buffalo Farm and enjoy a wine tasting experience at Old Inn Road Vineyard.

Kids will enjoy feeding lambs at Lucy Land Merino Farm and collecting eggs from free ranging chickens at Topi Open Range.

Other stops include Great Lakes Paddocks, the Brush Turkey Café and Tianjara Eco Home.

“We are so excited to present the results of our hard work to locals and visitors to the Great Lakes region,” co-coordinator Sue Williams said.

“The Food Trail showcases the best we have to offer and is contributing to sustainable economic and tourism growth for the area.”

The spring trail will be held on Sunday 1 October and will take visitors on a route from Bulahdelah to Wootton and across to Bungwahl and Pacific Palms.
