Local Native Bush Honey 1kg
Our Bush honey is a mix of native forest species such as Kamahi, Rewarewa and Kanuka. It has a richer, stronger flavour than our other honey varieties and is perfect on toast. All our honey is pure and unpastuerised.
Mason Brothers are committed to caring for the bees and hive health - they say:
"We endeavour to run our hives in a way that allows the bees to live how they naturally would. One of the biggest differences with the way we run our hives is that we leave the bees with around 30KG of their own honey for the winter, many take this in pursuit of extra profit but we have noticed our hives are stronger and healthier through winter and into spring and therefore are able to gather more when the flowers bloom.
We are planting native and exotic bee friendly trees on our farm where we are based and encourage our farmers to do the same. This will allow honey bees to flourish and also provide food for the native bees and birds of Aotearoa New Zealand. "
