    About us - a brief history of the Olley's operation

    Olley's Honey was established in 1956 in Oxley, Queensland under the sole proprietorship of Ken Olley.

    The business currently runs 3000 - 4000 bee colonies and 10,000 nucleus hives and is the largest such operation in Queensland.

    Formerly a major supplier to and shareholder of an Australian honey packer, Olley's is now an exporter in its own right.

    Proprietor Ken Olley can be considered a Father of Modern Beekeeping. He has made tremendous achievements in the industry, including the following:

    • Invention of the Split Boom Loader in 1960 (won several awards during the APIMONDIA held in Adelaide)
    • Invention of the "uncapping machine" using a chain over system with horizontal bars in 1965
    • Pioneered the use of palletised beehives in 1975
    • Invention of "special supplementary feed" in 1980
    • Invention of the ultra-light "Olley Beenet" to cover the trucks during bee migration
    • Design of the the light and less cumbersome "Olley Bee Veil"
    • Invention of "Olley Smoker Safety Box" during the millennium
    • In the year 2002, Ken was one of the 10 finalists of "Queensland's Regional Achievement Award"
    • Recipient of "Clifton's Achiever" of the Year in 2003
    • Currently working on tackling the debilitating bee disease, Nosema apis.
