It's Manuka Honey collection time at Mountain Gold Manuka
This time of year is hard work but also very rewarding for us at Mountain Gold Manuka.
It's when we reap the reward that comes with caring for the bees. A time for the bees to give back.
When the honey comes into our honey processing extraction facility it is still in the frames and honey boxes. This photo shows some frames containing the capped Manuka Honey.
We place each individual fame into a honey pricker that uncaps the layer of wax.
Then it's into the centrifuge. The honey is spun out and then placed in a drum for storage. It's completely pure and natural. Nothing is added or altered. Just pure raw natural New Zealand Mountain Gold Manuka Honey.
A New Zealand Christmas with New Zealand Manuka Honey and Pohutukawa Honey
Mountain Gold Manuka Honey got festive. We made Christmas Tree decorations using our beautiful pots of Manuka and Native Honey. We also love this time of year when not only our UMF Manuka Honey is being collected by our bees but also from the Pohutukawa Tree (Known as the New Zealand Christmas Tree).
Manuka Honey Testing
Every batch of our honey is independently tested in an IANZ accredited New Zealand laboratory. We ensure our Manuka Honey meets the New Zealand Manuka Honey standard and the UMF Manuka Honey standard.
