Native Bush Honey
Native Bush Honey has a buttery texture and is a real family favourite.
Just like the cheeky fantails that flit through our native bush, this honey is quite a character.
An eclectic blend of native New Zealand florals, including Beech Honeydew, Manuka, Kanuka, Kamahi, Five Finger, Hinau and Lotus, creates a honey that captures the very essence of a bushwalk in New Zealand.
Not too sweet, with a mild, well-rounded flavour and a beautifully sweet “lip-smacking” clean taste. We affectionately call this one our goldilocks honey, because everyone agrees — it is just right.
A smooth honey with a buttery texture — just perfect for spreading.
An aroma that is pleasant, fragrant and appealing. Floral and aromatic, with earthy hints of fresh rainwater.
Sourced from the stunning waterways of the Marlborough Sounds and the beautiful Mt. Richmond Forest Park.

Richmond Forest Park, then you’ll have a good idea of the breathtaking bush landscapes where our honey originates. These wilderness places are not just perfect for people who want to get away from it all, they also make fantastic locations for our bees. Far from urban noise, these hideaway worlds are rich with floral sources. All of our honeys have their own personality, but none captures the essence of the New Zealand bush quite like our Native Bush Honey. Just like your typical Kiwi bush walk, this honey has a little bit of everything — including the my
