In the beehive there is a special magic where an intricate network can teach us about living with nature. The video "A day with Jono" follows one of our amazing beekeepers from dawn to dusk allowing us to see into the world of a beekeeper.
Manuka honey is one of nature's special gifts. Sourced from some of New Zealand’s most pure and remote locations it is renowned for its unique flavour; Manuka Honey is recognised worldwide for its unique properties not found in ordinary honey.
The Maori have used the Manuka plant for centuries, using its wood to craft tools, canoes and furniture, and its leaves to create medicinal oils and teas that treat wounds and reduce fever. It is the Maoris we have to thank for discovering the delicious honey derived from the Manuka plant, which they used to sweeten their drinks and dishes for generations.
In early summer the bees forage in the delicate Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) flowers which only flowers 2-6 weeks a year. It’s a busy start to the honey season.
