We wouldn’t put anything on our family table that wasn’t safe for us and we feel the same way about our products. The Whenua Honey trademark guarantees all our products are authentic indigenous manuka products that are wild, pure and true to label, but most importantly safe for you and your family.
Our honey and oil products have been sourced from indigenous Maori land (whenua) that has been kept in the same whanau (family) for generations. Our cultural priority is to keep our lands free from harmful sprays and chemicals, to allow us to continue to live off the land on which we work, play and live. The Whenua Honey beekeeping whanau connect through whakapapa (lineage) to our whenua (land). This special connection to our whenua allows us to bring food safe products to your table. Ultimately, giving you peace of mind that you have purchased products that have been harvested in a culturally sustainable and respectful way.
