Our Rainbow Station honey is sourced from Manuka bushes we planted ourselves and foraged by bee’s who’s hives are placed on our own properties at the top of the South Island of New Zealand in a remote and unpopulated environment away from contaminants and pollutants.
MG (Methylglyoxal) is derived from DHA which occurs naturally in the nectar of the Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium) and displays antimicrobial properties that can be related to the killing of bacteria.
In 1899, T.Cropp built his first beehive in a wild, remote valley not too far from here. He was a pioneer that dreamed big, kept things practical, and passed on his knowledge to the next generation. The pristine mountains and remote forest of Rainbow Station along with the beautiful bays over the top of New Zealand’s South Island, are havens for the beehives. ested and Certified as 100% pure New Zealand multi-floral Manuka Honey by an accredited NZ Laboratory to meet MPI Government-regulated Manuka Honey standards. Nelson Honey takes great care to bring you nature’s goodness.
