We are a family run business which works hard to provide quality honey Direct from the Beekeeper. Our hives are situated all around Taranaki and processed at our NZFSA approved honey house. We pack our own honey which ensures that great honey is produced from the field to the pot.
How is honey produced?
The honey season runs from November to March and during this time the bees collect nectar from flowers and produce honey which they store up to feed themselves during the winter. They store the honey in frames which are stored in honey supers.
How is it extracted?
The honey supers are brought to our NZFSA approved honey house and each frame is removed and put through the uncapper which removes the wax layer covering the honey. The frames are then put in to the extractor which spins them round and using centrifugal force pulls the honey out. The honey is then filtered to remove any lumps of wax.
