Articles, News, and Resources about Manuka Honey

 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.
