This Season's Honey is Harvested!

We have just finished harvesting and extracting this season's honeys and thanks to our wonderful helpers who have assisted at each apiary location!  We couldn't have done it without you!  We are very lucky to have great family members and friends (and even friend's teenagers!) that make themselves available to help lift heavy boxes of honey off hives, onto trailers and then unload them at the honey house.  There's been some very long and exhausting days but it's been fun along the way. 


It hasn't been one of the best honey harvests but we are very thankful for what we do have. We will be able to pack at least one batch of each of these varieties of honey: Marokopa Spring, Marokopa Summer, Hakarimata, Kirikiriroa, Four Brothers Reserve, Ohui Manuka and Horsham Downs. It has been a bad season for manuka honey around the country so we are lucky to have a small batch of Ohui Manuka and we have just packed the last of the previous seasons Marokopa Manuka.

honey-harvest-2016-508You may have noticed our online honey store is looking a little bare at the moment,  please be patient with us while we pack the honeys.  It all takes time!  We use someone else's facilities to extract and pack our honeys and they are in the process of installing a new packing machine, so there will be delays.  We are incredible lucky to work with the best beekeepers / honey packers in the Waikato and very lucky to use their facilities.  We do need to fit around them to pack our honey but we hope to have the honeys available as soon as possible.  The first one to be packed will be Four Brothers Reserve!
