Native Multifloral Honey
Our clean green Runanga Block has blooms native to New Zealand only. Trees like Kamahi (Weinmannia racemosa) and Rewarewa (Knightia excelsa) produce a honey unique in texture & flavour.
Native Multifloral honey contains key vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, niacin, zinc, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium - a total of 22 amino acids and around 5,000 enzymes.
We keep bees organically. Every beekeeper in New Zealand has the fulltime job of managing this harmful mite fittingly called varroa destructor in our hives. How we go about it is by using certified organic remedies. We are always looking for ground-breaking methods to keep this mite at bay.
The health of our bees is very important to us as is the land they forage on.
Owhaoko “Wild Perfection”
Owhaoko whenua (land) has nourished and provided for the people who lived and travelled through the area for hundreds of years. Nestled between the Kaweka and Kaimanawa national forests, south-east of Lake Taupo, the rugged ranges stir awe and respect.
The whenua is held in a trust for the descendants of indigenous Māori who once walked the terrain. As kaitiaki (guardians) of Owhaoko land, sustainability is paramount and deeply embedded in the management of the land.
Given the land’s remoteness and inaccessibility, the area is virtually untouched and boasts a rich diversity of native flora and fauna, including some very rare species in their natural habitat.
For six weeks each summer, our hives are set down by helicopter near dense Mānuka Bush, producing some of the purest Mānuka honey available.
