We have just added a wonderful product range for Manawa Honey. Their honey comes from a precious place - Ruatahuna, which is known as Te Manawa-o-Te-Ika-a-Maui, the Heart of Maui’s Fish. The name refers to the exploits of Maui, an ancestor from ancient mythologies, who pulled up a huge fish from the depths of the Pacific Ocean, that was transformed to become the North Island of New Zealand, as we know it today.
Ruatahuna is located in the heart of a vast region of remote untouched native forests known as Te Urewera which extends for over 200,000 hectares. Te Urewera is the homeland of the tribe Tuhoe, known for holding fast to cultural tradition. Te Urewera is also a region with different types of flora that is the perfect home for keeping bees and producing pure and natural honey.
