BEES AND TREES MANUKA HONEY
HIVE TO BOTTLE HONEY
Bees and Trees Manuka Honey is traceable back to the exact hive in New Zealand that it comes from.
Bees and Trees Manuka Honey is a true Hive to Bottle honey.
They own their own hives and each one has a unique RFID chip on it so they can monitor and keep track of each hive.
Each bottle of honey can be traced back to the actual hive it came from.
This means you know exactly where your honey came from. It is not a mix of various countries, batches, and origins. When Manuka Honey is mixed together from lots of suppliers and batches, it is much easier for it to get adulterated and contaminated. By using a hive to bottle product you always know where your honey is coming from.
100% pure, high MGO Manuka Honey from the Taranaki region of New Zealand.
CARE FOR THE BEES
With all of the issues facing the collapse of bee colonies worldwide, it is important that beekeepers care for their bees and do not overwork them or subject them to harsh conditions or environments.
The bees are not put in areas with heavy pesticide or herbicide use. Bees & Trees is region-specific honey, produced in Taranaki, which is on the west-central part of the North Island. The areas they produce their Manuka honey are remote even by New Zealand standards. Much of the land either borders on or is part of publicly owned native forest reserves.
The hives are consistently inspected to ensure they are free of disease and the queens are strong.
Did you know a single, healthy hive, can grow from 10,000 bees in the winter to over 50,000 bees during the flowering seasons?
