pure manuka honey
Our manuka honey is sourced exclusively from Owhaoko lands and produced in limited quantities. For a few weeks each summer, hives are set down by helicopter near dense manuka bush flowering in the uninhabited wilderness.
The soft texture and delicious flavour boast a wonderful lasting taste of warm herbal notes with medium sweetness.
Owhaoko® manuka honey is independently laboratory tested and certified as pure, authentic monofloral manuka honey, as per the Ministry for Primary Industries’ standards.

The Bees & our Lands
Experience the taste of wild perfection in every drop.
Because our land is so remote & only accessible by helicopter, our manuka is harvested from the highest altitudes in the North Island. The seclusion means that our manuka honey is free pollutants such as pesticides & we produce some of the purest manuka honey available on today’s market.
Healthy bees are key to a quality harvest of Owhaoko® manuka honey & we only work with specially selected beekeepers whose values align with ours. During the summer months, around 1,200 beehives are flown by helicopter onto Owhaoko® land and the bees forage almost exclusively on manuka nectar.
This wilderness once acted as a pataka kai (food store house) for our people. The food-gathering tradition continues as Owhaoko® harvests premium manuka honey made by bees foraging on the land.
We stand by the quality and authenticity of every jar of Owhaoko® honey.
Our membership of the UMFHA (Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association) provides independent certification that our products are premium quality, true manuka honey.
As part of the UMF™ Honey Association testing process, every batch of honey must also go through a series of additional checks and supporting programmes to ensure the ultimate in authenticity, quality and safety. Please see umf.org.nz (UMFHA™ licence no. #2862) to find out more.
