AOTEA (GREAT BARRIER ISLAND) IS COVERED IN MANUKA SO WE ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO PULL BEAUTIFUL MANUKA HONEY FROM OUR HIVES. BEES PLAY A HUGE ROLE IN THE ECOSYSTEM ON THE ISLAND SO IT IS SUPER IMPORTANT THAT WE ONLY TAKE WHAT THEY CAN SPARE AND ALWAYS ENSURE THEY HAVE ENOUGH HONEY FOR THEMSELVES TO SEE THEM THROUGH THE WINTER.
Manuka Honey 125+
Aotea Manuka Honey 125+ is sourced sustainably from our hives on Aotea (Great Barrier Island). Our manuka honey has a certified MGO (Methylglyoxal) rating of 125+. Methylglyoxal is the active ingredient in manuka honey which gives it the unique anti-microbial properties it is so sought after for so you know it's the good stuff. Our honey is extracted and packed by hand, and it is never heated above 45 degrees to ensure none of its activity is denatured. It is raw, unpastuerised, and sourced sustainably.
MANUKA HONEY 300+
Our Aotea Manuka Honey 300+ is the next step up when you are searching for the amazing anti-microbial properties found in manuka honey. With more than double the MGO rating of our Aotea Manuka Honey 125+, the Aotea Manuka Honey 300+ packs a serious dose of the active methylglyoxal. It is an anti-microbial warrior.
All our honey is sustainably sourced and packed straight from the hives so its just as nature intended - raw and unpasteurised. And most importantly of all, we always leave the majority of the honey on the hives for the bees and only ever extract what they can spare.
