Eileen with her visionary capabilities single-handedly conceptualised the Bulaccino Garden Farm where a lot of the organic produce for the cafés comes from and this is also where the delicious honey is made.
A family business, Eileen's son Dirk tends to the bees and extracts this incredibly fine tasting, medicinal Fiji Honey.
The Farm is just fifteen minutes away from the Namaka café. Its transformation and development from idle sugar cane farm land into ultimately a meaningful attraction for both local and overseas visitors has been planned in 2 phases of 5 years each. We are nearing the completion of the 1st phase, and the 30 acre property is already slowly but surely becoming integrated with the Bulaccino outlets.
There are sheep, chicken, ducks and a wide selection of fruits, citrus and vegetables. The sheep are of the Fiji Fantastic breed; together with our duck and chicken farming it gives the farm a truly complete feel. Avocado trees, fruit trees and even some of Fiji’s finest hardwoods adorn the property as well.
Our Bees…they love tending to our crops. They make our fruits sweeter and our veggies taste better. They work so hard to keep our farm going. They also make honey, which needless to say we plunder because that too tastes wonderful!
Some interesting facts about pure honey are that it soothes coughs, boosts your memory, can be used to treat open wounds, can relieve seasonal allergies, it kills antibiotic-resistant bacteria, cleans your skin if applied (pimples and acne), it is great workout fuel, resolves scalp problems and dandruff, it is an instant relief for sunburns and it even helps metabolise alcohol!!
Thank goodness our bees love working, and work So Hard!
Soursop, the fruit of Annona muricata, is being heralded by many as a potent natural cancer killer.
Anti-cancer capabilities of soursop were first discovered in the mid-1970s, but were kept hidden from the public until recently.
Whatever the reasons were, we know now that soursop can be used for treating various types of cancer and is more effective than some popular cancer drugs.
Soursop super food...
Over 20 laboratory tests have confirmed the strong anti-cancer capabilities of soursop. These tests have revealed:
Soursop killed cancerous cells in 12 types of cancer, including pancreatic, lung, breast, prostate, and colon cancer
The fruit contains compounds that are 10,000 times more potent in inhibiting the growth of cancerous cells than Adriamycin, a chemotherapy drug used to treat several types of cancer
Annonaceous Acetogenins present in soursop kills only cancerous cells and not healthy cells (all conventional treatments, be it chemotherapy, radiation, or oral drugs, kill both cancerous and healthy cells)
Soursop slows the growth of cancerous cells without causing any harmful side effects

Papaya Treats Inflammation
Papain and chymopapain, protein-digestive enzymes found in papaya lowers inflammation and improves healing from burns.
Papain breaks down the inactive proteins in the skin, removing dead tissue from burns.
This benefits the body as it helps heal skin injuries, relieves psoriasis, removes warts, treats ringworms and cold sores.
Also vitamins C, E and beta carotenes are good at reducing inflammation and as such these nutrients are used to treat asthma, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis among many other inflammatory ailments.
One of the benefits of eating papaya is that it helps to prevent cancer.
Papaya is a rich source of antioxidants that the body needs to fight against cancer-causing cells. Vitamin C, E and beta-carotenes are antioxidants that prevent all kinds of cancers. So adding a daily serving of papaya to your diet may lessen your risk of developing cancer.
