Beech Honeydew Honey

From $10.00

Beech Honeydew Honey has a silky texture with hints of flavour like berries, nectar and caramel.

An aromatic reminder of a day in the lakeside bush. Enticing like a spring morning.

Our Beech Honeydew has a big personality capturing the essence of its wild origins. To make this special honey, our bees gather droplets of honeydew from the trunks of beech trees.

Research suggests that Honeydew Honey has high levels of antioxidants, along with strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies also suggest Honeydew contains high levels of Oligosaccharides, a powerful prebiotic that supports and promotes beneficial gut bacteria.

  1. Jill B.

    This is our favorite-ever honey for the mornings porridge! Lovely taste & delightfully runny.

  2. Inaya C.

    Very dark in colour, runny and has a very strong taste, almost molasses-like. Really good for flavouring porridge and tea.

  3. Yvonne E.

    Second lot of honey we have purchased now. This is a very light, not too sweet honey which suits me perfectly.

    Like the fact it is available in glass jars also. 1kg goes a long way. Will be back again.

  4. Shari L.

    I love this honey – nature’s most wonderful caramel taste 🙂

  5. Margaret C.

    I really love this honey. Great for on porridge, but I also stew feijoas with it – the perfect sweetener for this fruit.

  6. Susan R.

    Clear amber in colour and tastes like liquid toffee. Absolutely beautiful and my favorite. I don’t even pretend to put it on toast – it’s scooped straight from the jar.

  7. Stephanie L.

    I did not use to take honey in my cup of tea. Since purchasing a big pot of Beech Honeydew, I have honey in my tea – Morning, noon and night!!! This one’s a favourite, and there’s no going back to just regular tea now!

  8. Oldriska C.

    Great tasting honey. Became our family favourite. Gave some to my friends and they love it. This beautiful, dark coloured honey reminds me of the forest honey we would get from our friend while living in Europe a long time ago.

  9. Dave & Elaine

    This honey is out of this world. Very different to all other honeys as its aroma is not of a sweet nature but the taste is. This honey has an Earthy fragrance to it. We love it. Along with the sweet yummy Manuka honey, we are very happy to be able to have it sent to us. A special thanks to everyone who makes this possible.

  10. Janice M.

    I just love the rich flavour of this honey. Such a versatile honey being runny but still perfect for toast. Adds a subtle flavour and hint of sweetness to stewed rhubarb.

  11. Sue B.

    I really enjoyed this honey. It has a fabulous texture which blends beautifully with my yoghurt and muesli in the morning. And I love the idea of little bees gathering honeydew from the Beech trees. 😊

  12. Andrew C.

    Beech Honeydew is one of the tasty Mountain Valley honey range we use to sweeten our coffee and tea. Mellow on toast or buns – so yummy we always keep a good supply on hand.

  13. Brigit N.

    Not all honey is equal, even in New Zealand. We absolutely love this honey with toast, on peanut butter and honey sandwiches and with our red bush tea. Best of all, we have the option of getting it in a glass jar which is something we really appreciate! Beech Honeydew Mountain Valley honey is one of our staples on a visit to the Nelson Saturday market. Thanks for a quality product.

  14. Vanessa S.

    I bought 4 different honey varieties to try and this is by far my favourite! I had to hide it away to stop myself from having a spoonful every time I went past. It’s beautifully smooth, perfectly flavoured, and reminds me of the honeydew we used to collect on our fingertips from the native bush as children. I’ll definitely be needing more of this.

  15. Peter R.

    This honey is a versatile honey and it is perfect to drizzle on my breakfast porridge with yoghurt and banana. I use a pudding spoonful every morning and I use it as a sweetener in my Milo hot drinks. Delicious! I tell my grandchildren to have it as honey makes you funny!

  16. Sarah B.

    A family favourite, great for tea and coffee.

  17. Kelly S.

    I love this honey! It has a fantastic beech flavour and pours so easily making it great for measuring when cooking. My favourite way to eat it is on soft white bread with sesame seeds. Very addictive

  18. Gareth W.

    Great tasting honey.
