The Forsyth Island Honey is 100% pure, authentic Manuka Honey
Forsyth Island Manuka Honey MGO 100+ honours the spirit and all that we love in Aotearoa, “Land of the Long White Cloud”. The pure, authentic monofloral Manuka honey with earthy flavour is a unique batch harvested from beehives situated on that Island in the 2021 season. Manuka Honey is famous for its antiviral and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Beekeeping in the Marlborough Sounds
The Marlborough Sounds in New Zealand is one of the fascinating maritime sceneries on earth. With 1500km of New Zealand’s coastline, Marlborough Sounds is a collection of ancient sunken river valleys filled with the waters of the Pacific Ocean. Forested hills rise steeply from the sea around an intricate coastline of sheltered inlets and sandy bays. One of these bays, called Maori Bay, is a base for our beekeepers.
Our Beekeepers must travel by boat to check our beehives’ sites and harvest the New Zealand Honey. Therefore, the most important member of our Marlborough Sounds team is our Captain, who transports our beekeepers to the untouched natural areas where our bees collect the pure Manuka nectar. Close by our Maori Bay base is situated the unpopulated island called Forsyth Island, where our bees found a haven. This Island of 700 hectares is a valuable natural monument of pristine fern forests and fragrant Manuka trees settled amongst impressive cliffs and isolated beaches.
