Mānuka Honey Harvesting

Manuka Honey is made by bees that pollinate the Manuka flower, which is native to New Zealand and blooms just 2-6 weeks per year. Manuka Honey can only be produced in areas abundant with native Manuka blossoms, thats why most of the  hives are located in some of the most remote, untouched parts of New Zealand

The honey harvest takes place from December through to late March, but since manuka flowers bloom at differing times, depending on the area, the beekeepers need to track the flowers, moving the hives as they go so the bees can get easy access to the manuka.
