Hi - I am very interested in trying your Manuka Honey, but I have some reservations about verifying its identity and the exact location where the honey was collected. Can you please provide further proof that the honey is harvested in New Zealand, and is not adulterated with other honey(s)? Thank you.
Bees & Trees:
You are wise to do your research to ensure you’re getting the real thing! We are the only brand in the US that own our own hives, our own extraction plant, and our own packing line in NZ.
We are one of the only brands that publish our independent lab test reports verifying our honey is what we say it is in terms of methylglyoxal (MG) content (you can find these reports linked on our product pages here). This is one of the most important factors in identifying whether or not Manuka honey is authentic and labeled honestly. We have a lot of information about this topic on our website at www.beesandtrees.com.
We also hold a new New Zealand Fernmark license that authenticates real NZ products. Follow this link to our license page on the New Zealand government website.
Try our honey—you won't be disappointed.

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.
