Rural West Auckland Blend.

A tasty honey blend from apiaries around rural West Auckland. This batch includes nectars from the wildflowers and farmlands, as well as the scrubby patches of Manuka and Kanuka bush that are common to countryside areas of northern New Zealand. This honey has crystallized with a fine and spreadable texture. Great tasting local honey for West Aucklanders.

Raw and unpasteurized. Honey can be softened by heating it gently.

Waitakere Forest Nectars – 30+MGO Manuka Blend.

This honey comes from the forested north-eastern slopes of West Auckland’s Waitakere Ranges. My bees have foraged from a variety of native nectar-producing trees to produce this batch. Nectars include Manuka (30+ MGO), Kanuka, Rata, Pohutukawa, as well as wildflower and pasture-flower from the unforested patches of the area. Delicious local honey for West Aucklanders.

Raw and unpasteurized. Honey can be softened by heating it gently.

Far North Farmland Honey – 26+MGO Manuka Blend.

This honey has been foraged from the rugged hilly farmlands of the Far North region. It is a blend of pasture flower and Manuka (26+ MGO), and has set solid into a beautiful soft velvety texture. Light sweet taste. This batch comes in a dark, amber-coloured pot but is actually the lightest coloured honey from this summer’s harvest. My personal favorite for this season.

Raw and unpasteurized. Honey can be softened by heating it gently.

 

Far North Kanuka Blend.

The Kanuka tree is a cousin to the Manuka bush and its honey has different health properties. Its taste is strong and earthy, but not super-sweet compared with most honey types. This batch comes from the Far North region and tested out at 97% Kanuka/Manuka pollen. *

Raw and unpasteurized. Honey can be softened by heating it gently. Produced and packed by Don Buck Honey.

 

*This honey has had a pollen count test done by a laboratory technician. Kanuka and Manuka pollen are very difficult to tell apart, and so are counted together. Since Manuka bushes are only in flower at the start of the season, and this batch was harvested toward the end of the 2019 season, most of the Kanuka/Manuka pollen counted in this batch will be Kanuka. Also, pollen counts do not necessarily equate to nectar content – but 97% pollen do indicate a very high Kanuka nectar content. For more on pollen count tests, please see here and here.
