Lindsay Callaway is the current owner and managing director of Warral Maldon, an apiary based in central Victoria with over 3,000 hives that pollinates 1700 hectares of orchards and produces over 200 tonnes of honey each year.
Warral Maldon found its beginning with an Edward Teague Penglase in 1896 – Lindsay’s great-great grandfather, making him the fifth generation owner. Growing up in the industry, Lindsay inherited his love of bees from his dad, Roger and has continued his legacy of innovation and excellence in the beekeeping profession.
He is constantly on the hunt for the best when it comes to his business, from hive production and transportation, equipment standards and biosecurity, to honey and beeswax processing, queen bee breeding, research and quality standards. Lindsay is happiest when out on the road with his bees chasing honey flows and is passionate about sharing what he’s learned to benefit the wider industry. He’s recently undertaken a brand refresh, opened a gift shop and released a new range of Signature, single-source honeys, and this is only the start of his big plans for Warral Maldon.
