We completed our harvest in New Zealand during March. I get a lot of questions about how we know we are getting Manuka honey in our hives. There are 3 or 4 parts to the answer (see FAQ page for more), one of which is depicted here as we separate Manuka honey from any native "bush" or other mixed floral types at harvest.

Last May, I posted information on honey granulation.  At that time, we had a batch of honey that was a bit more coarsely granulated than our earlier batches.  Through further research and testing we have found the packing process can be a significant factor in how the honey "sets up" after packing.

 The good news is the current batch that we are shipping has a much nicer finish, and is more consistent with our earlier batches.  We welcome customer feedback and hope you enjoy our honey in its natural raw state.  We want to provide it as close to the way the bees make it as possible.
