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, Claudelands Events Centre and the Taitua Arboretum.
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.

Here's Some Customer Feedback
"Excellent honey. Highly recommend Sweetree Kirikiriroa Honey and Sweetree Manuka Honey. Beaut thing about these guys they are local producers and organic. Very affordable. Always great to have on hand for lemon and honey drink, Manuka is especially good for soothing sore throat. Have tried their other honeys, also great. Go visit them at the Hamilton Farmers Market held every Sunday."
