Kirikiriroa is the Maori name for Hamilton.  We are proud to bring you this honey from three Hamilton City Council iconic parks - The Hamilton Gardens, Hamilton Zoo and the Taitua Arboretum.  Try at taste of Hamilton!

Some of the honey from these apiary sites goes back to Council to be sold at Hamilton Gardens and some is going to the zoo. Honey is a special treat available to some of the zoo animals and the zoo keepers are very enthusiastic about using the Kirikiriroa honey.
