The land is so remote that they have to use helicopters to lift the hives into stands of flowering Manuka for the summer.
At Egmont Honey, they leave the bees in the native forest all year round. This ensures that you as the consumer gets some of the most natural, pure and pristine honey in the world.
Egmont Honey is proud to be a certified UMF honey producer as well as a Fernmark Licence holder. The Fernmark licence is only awarded to reputable New Zealand companies and it is a mark promoting trust and authenticity.
