Once again as the second official release , we are proud to present our own original & signature honey , defined as 'Bush' or Multi-flora from the native hills and residents gardens in this one of a kind coastal Wellington township.
Known for a dramatically steep & exposed coastal landscape with a rich natural bio diversity, our small handful of apiaries are delicately nurtured against the wild Wellington elements to present this honey that on average possess up to 300 different botanicals making it powerful ally for general health & well being.
A land of orange clay soil that is rich in minerals, the Eastbourne hills with their wind swept flora courtesy of nearby Cook Straight attribute to higher than normal levels of sodium found in the nutritional makeup of each unique batch. Studys suggest that this may help to control your body's fluid balance in addition to helping with the sending of nerve impulses that affects muscle function for the human body.
Delicately processed by hand this is traditional 'back yard' or free-range honey that is most importantly aged prior to release and un pasteurised or Raw. Additionally strong attention and time is dedicated to course filtering for full crystallisation allowing the synergy of all essential pollen, propolis & nectars.
