Sweetree's Horsham Downs Country is collected from our home apiary just a few minutes north of Hamilton. This area is predominantly farmland and country living with bush gullies beside the Waikato River. Here our bees forage on pasture and river wildflowers, garden flowers and natives. Everyone will enjoy this honey!
Here is our tasting notes from this seasons Horsham Downs Country:
Much like a sweet fruit liquor, with the perfect balance of sweet and sour – think verjuice
Rich golden hue
Thick and hearty textured with a slight grainy texture
Savoury Aroma with a strong hit of sweetness
Great to sweeten pickles or in a salad dressing. Would also suit smoke foods like fish, mussels or chicken
Many of the Horsham Downs Country jars of the current batch have some frosting around the edge of the jar. This is due to the presence of air trapped between the side of the jar and the honey and crystals forming. It does not affect the taste of the honey.
Here is Some Customer Feedback:
'We buy your beautiful raw honey in glass jars because it suits our biomedical way of living and eating (natural and minimum plastics/toxins). We all love the Horsham Downs Country honey. The children eat it on their homemade bread. If they have a sore throat they ask for a spoon of honey to suck. It's the best honey in New Zealand, tastes fantastic and keeps us healthy'.
Sam Walker, Hamilton
"Thanks so much for the wonderfully packaged order I received. The packet of Borage seeds were a nice touch, and I was pleased to get the Honey Sticks for my wee ones Christmas stocking .... but the HONEY! The Horsham Downs Country honey is just divine, so satiny, not grainy at all. My daughter usually "hates" honey, but since trying yours she has happily had honey sandwiches for school! Thanks again for an outstanding product and service!"
