Why do we use native New Zealand honey?
New Zealand’s diverse native flora treats beekeepers across the country to a range of native Aoteroa honeys. Kāmahi, Pōhutukawa, Rewarewa, Rātā, the list goes on. However, currently the market has a singular focus, Mānuka. This means keepers with rich natural native plant diversity are being forced to walk away from their hives.
Because native honeys which aren’t Mānuka are being forgotten about, our apiculture industry is becoming less sustainable. However, we can change that. We aim to show New Zealand and the globe that all New Zealand native honeys, can make premium products. By sourcing, and growing awareness of a range of native honeys, we are supporting keepers across the country and creating a more sustainable industry.
Supporting a range of native honeys not only builds a diversified and sustainable industry, but contributes towards the healthy pollination of our most pristine environments. Now that’s the buzz.
