Just As Nature Intended 

What is the Manuka?


The scientific name of Manuka is Leptospermum scoparium (Tea Tree) and it is commonly known in Maori as mānuka .


It is typically a shrub that can grow  between 2 to 6 m (7–16 ft) tall with usually white flowers, however, occasionally you may find pink or red manuka flowers.

Depending on the latitude and longitude, the manuka flowers during the months of September until November.


It is particularly located on the east coasts of the North and South Islands of New Zealand.


Each frame of honey is hand harvested and made by bees the way nature intended; unprocessed, unpasteurised and contains all its natural enzymes.

Our Sustainable


Ethical Practices

Our beekeeping practices are born from our endless passion attending and working with our happy bees. 

Our  vision is simply to contribute a sustainable world for us in New Zealand and for our future generations.


Our Happy Bees's Magnificient Premium Honey and New Zealand Manuka Honey

originates from our endless breathtaking hills of the North Island in NZ. 

If All you are tasting is Sweet,

It May Not Be True Blossom Honey  

Pure honey is rarely perfectly clear and transparent. Our honey at Happy Beekeeping is slightly opaque which means the pollen hasn’t been filtered out, maintaining its original purity.


Most importantly, good honey, as in good wine, will have layers of flavour. While sugar and other sweeteners are simply sweet, honey can express floral, grassy, fruity or woody flavour notes.

All our honey and Manuka Honey are Certified and tested by an independent laboratory for grading and authenticity.
