We plant areas around our hives with a variety of native flowering species, so our bees can feed on nectar and pollen throughout the year. Our bees live their lives in a lush alpine environment with minimal intervention, free to forage and feed themselves the way nature intended.
Our remote landscape preserves our honey's purity
Mānuka flowers late, so we know that when we harvest in late autumn, the honey is pure Mānuka. We test each batch, just to be sure. We also test for other contaminants, although they're extremely unlikely in such a clean, isolated environment.
A caring approach to beekeeping
At Awhi we believe that all of nature is interconnected, from the tallest trees to the smallest insects. We care for our bees, as gently and naturally as possible, so that they can live healthy, stress-free lives. We give to them as they give to us.
Independently proven to be authentic and highly potent
Our single harvest honey has been independently tested and certified by New Zealand’s UMF Honey Association, proof of its purity and high potency. We package and label it in New Zealand, so you know it’s genuine.
