We're very excited to announce our New Zealand Native Honey! It's our first "Native" honey (not a Manuka honey).
This harvest offering is a limited production honey produced by bees foraging on unique native New Zealand trees, such as Kamahi, Rewarewa, and Rata, on the remote hillsides of the Taranaki region on the West-Central part of the North Island.
This honey has a mild, sweet, floral flavor with a buttery texture. It captures the very essence of a walk in the New Zealand countryside on a beautiful sunny day. It's great for everyday use including cooking and baking.
A specialty table honey that tastes this good will be sure to bring you joy! Click here to learn more and order now!

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.

Bees & Trees is a small, family-owned business. At the heart of our business we do things a certain way. Not only do we do our best to bring you the highest quality Manuka honey on the Earth, we also do our best to respect the land we use and the communities in which we participate. One of the ways we do this is by sponsoring local organizations.
One such organization is the Eltham Takau Sheepdog Trial Club, located in the scenic Mangamingi valley on the North Island. Here’s a bit about the Club as described by Matthew and Jackie Francis, Glen Nui Station, Vice President & Secretary for Eltham Takau Dog Trial Club.
