All our honeys have higher than average levels of naturally occurring antioxidants. Antioxidants are important for neutralising the harmful free radicals in our bodies.

Mystery of Manuka

Manuka honey is collected by bees from the nectar of the native manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium), which grows in abundance across New Zealand. The Manuka flower only produces nectar for 3-4 weeks a year. Bees forage on this nectar and produce honey that is renowned around the world for its medicinal properties.
