Harmonious Craftsmanship

The Manuka Hunters Story

Our story begins with a respect for the land we call home. The hives belong to us, but the land belongs to the forest. With a steadfast commitment to preserving its pristine beauty, we embrace practices that honor the delicate balance of our natural surroundings. In our forest, there is no place for pesticides or harmful chemicals. Instead, we embrace the harmony of nature, allowing our bees to forage freely amidst a tapestry of Manuka trees, untouched by human interference.

Our bees craft their masterpiece, weaving together nectar gathered from the flowers that adorn our woodland haven. Here, amidst the perfect climatic conditions, honey is born – a testament to the purity and vitality of our pristine environment. At peak season, our dedicated beekeepers tend to our hives with love and care. As the seasons unfold, we watch with anticipation as our bees work their magic, and bring us the liquid treasure.

After eight weeks of meticulous craftsmanship, we embark on the next chapter of our journey, bringing our precious hives to our factory. Here, with the utmost reverence for nature's bounty, we extract the honey - extracted from the hives exactly as is. Our journey doesn't end there. Each jar of honey undergoes rigorous testing in a specialist independent laboratory, ensuring that it meets the highest standards of governing authority. With each seal of approval, we affirm our commitment to excellence and integrity. Our measure is the UMF logo. The independent tested measure of the Manuka honeys strength.

From hive to bottle, our story is one of harmony, sustainability, and unwavering dedication to nature's gift. Join us on a journey to taste the essence of the forest – one spoonful of pure, unadulterated bliss at a time.

  • Step 1: The Bees' Bounty

    Our journey starts with the humble honeybee, Nature's expert forager. These incredible insects collect sweet nectar from the delicate Manuka flower blossoms, storing it safely in their honey sacs. The nectar mixes with special enzymes and proteins as it returns to the hive, kickstarting its transformation into pure, golden honey.

  • Step 2: The Hive's Heartbeat

    With great patience and care, our expert beekeepers approach the hives, ensuring our precious bees remain calm and unstressed. Honey harvesting is a delicate dance, where we only take the excess honey, leaving enough behind to keep the colony thriving and healthy. The honey-laden frames are gently removed and replaced with fresh ones, ready for our industrious bees to fill with more liquid gold.

  • Step 3: Nature's Extraction

    At our production facility, the frames are carefully prepared for extraction. First, the wax caps sealing each honeycomb cell are removed, revealing the golden treasure. Then, through a gentle centrifugal process, the pure honey is extracted from the combs, leaving behind any wax bits for a smooth, velvety texture.

  • Step 4: The Art of Cellaring

    Now comes the crucial step that sets Manuka Hunters honey apart. Our premium Manuka honey is carefully matured in temperature-controlled facilities, allowing the incredible UMF properties to develop and reach their peak fully. This meticulous process ensures we achieve the highest possible MGO/UMF levels before bottling, preserving all the natural enzymes and raw qualities, just as Nature intended.

  • Step 5: Creaming Perfection

    Manuka Hunters Honey is celebrated for its incredibly smooth, rich texture, thanks to
    our master honey artisans. Using traditional New Zealand methods passed down through generations, they cream and care for our honey with unmatched skill and passion, creating a velvety, decadent treat for your senses.

  • Step 6: Sustainable Bottling

    Finally, our premium honey is lovingly packaged in jars crafted with the utmost care for sustainability. Our high grade range uses glass that can be reused and recycled. Our plastic jars are made from PET with recyclable lids, free from BPA and phthalates, and fully recyclable once the label is removed. We source our packaging from suppliers who share our commitment to sustainable forest management, ensuring every step of our journey treads lightly on our planet.
