About Bees & Trees

Our company reflects our passion to create and deliver the finest Mānuka Honey available. Our bees forage in the remote hillsides of the Taranaki region of New Zealand, which is on the west-central part of the North Island. These pristine areas have been only lightly-touched by the impact of human development, and our honeys reflect this beautiful environment. Integrity and transparency are central to our philosophy and products, as we work in partnership with the natural resources of the Taranaki region.

Choosing Your Mānuka:

Shopping for Mānuka honey requires an understanding of the testing, ratings, and labeling standards that describe the potency or bioactivity of the honey. Region of origin and honey production methods differentiate premium Manuka brands.

1
Good Labeling for Manuka Honey–MG or UMF

Manuka Honey labels should always tell you the levels of MG (dietary methylglyoxal) in the honey. MG is a naturally occurring organic compound found in Mānuka honey that correlates to its antibacterial properties. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the wellness and healing properties. UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) is an alternative rating system that correlates directly with the levels of MG in the honey. Avoid brands that don’t display the MG level or the UMF trademarked logo.

2
Small-Batch vs. Commercial Production

Our Mānuka honey is raw and minimally processed. The bees make it, we extract it and pack it in glass jars, that's it. Unlike much commercially produced Mānuka honey, we avoid blending with other honeys, pasteurizing, or otherwise over-processing commonly found in the industry. Consider this when you are choosing your brand of Mānuka!

3
Where Did My Honey Come From?

Manuka Honey should come directly from New Zealand where the Manuka tree grows natively. Bees & Trees Honey carries the New Zealand FernMark License, which certifies native New Zealand products. Our Mānuka honey is region-specific to Taranaki, and we produce all of the Mānuka honey that we sell. From the remote sites we place our hives, to your table our Manuka honey is of the highest quality available anywhere in the world. We are not aiming to sell the most Mānuka honey, just the best.
