Fresh Manuka nectar is flowing into our hives in Taranaki! The weather has been brilliant of late, and the bees are responding by collecting and storing this beautiful bounty of nature in our hives.
As the bees turn this fresh nectar to honey, they will fill the combs, dry the honey by fanning their wings, and then cap each comb with an airtight wax seal. A few weeks from now, we will carefully extract this honey in our state-of-the-art extraction facility just down the road. It will then go into one of our glass jars to be aged for you to enjoy.
Next stop, your pantry. That’s right, no blending, no heating, no pasteurization, no whipping or creaming. Just pure, natural, raw hive-to-jar honey. Independently tested for activity level, independently verified for place of origin - honey you can trust.

Have you heard that honeybees never sleep? It seems to be a notion that is perpetuated by word of mouth. Researchers say otherwise. It just goes to prove that you can’t believe everything you hear.
According to Jürgen Tautz in his book The Buzz About Bees, foragers enter a pronounced state of sleep—largely at night and in the hive. However, sometimes they sleep outside the hive as well. In addition, beekeepers and bee photographers the world over have reported seeing bees asleep in flowers. The bees may remain stationary for hours, only to fly away when disturbed.
