Bees & Trees Native Honey

We've got great news! 🥳

August 19, 2020

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!

Do honeybees sleep? Of course they sleep!

May 13, 2020

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 Bee sleeping on flowerpronounced 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.
