Happy with Honey Harvest

Written by Stephanie on March 28th, 2019.      0 comments

Last weekend we completed our harvest of this seasons honey!  Thank goodness it was a lot better than last year and our bees had plenty of surplus honey for us to harvest.  We always make sure we leave plenty of honey for the bees to keep them going over winter and build up over spring.  Our bees made it through the winter very well and were healthy and strong going into this season, with the honey we left them at the end of last season.  It meant we didn't have much variety to sell but we don't think pumping them up with sugar syrup (like may beekeepers do) is good for their health.

It was a good year for Waikato honey so we will have new season Marokopa Spring, Four Brothers Reserve, Hakarimata, Kirikiriroa, and Horsham Downs honey available this year.   We still have some Ohui Manuka and Marokopa Summer from last season and we've already packed this seasons award-winning Marokopa Spring, Four Brothers Reserve will be available next week and Hakarimata the week after that.  We will then be working on packing the Kirikiriroa and Horsham Downs honeys.
