Rainbow Station Multifloral Manuka Honey MG30+ & Honeydew Honey is abeautiful and unique flavour, harvested from our beautiful Rainbow Station Area, top of the South Island of New Zealand.
Millions of bees, thousands of hives, and over one hundred years of family beekeeping make this honey something special.
The pristine mountains and remote forest of Rainbow Station along with the beautiful bays all over the top of the South Island of New Zealand are havens for our beehives. Back in 1899, T.Cropp built his first beehive in a wild, remote valley not too far from here. He was a pioneer that dreamed big, kept things practical, and passed on his knowledge to the next generation.

Science of Honey
Honey has been used since ancient times for its special properties. Good quality honey can contain beneficial plant compounds including antioxidants. It contains high levels of glucose and fructose, a natural alternative to those wishing to avoid refined sugar. However, the composition of a honey batch depends on the floral source(s) available to the bees that produced the honey.
Nelson Honey operates a team of beekeepers and has hives located throughout the beautiful regions at top of the South Island of New Zealand. Hives enjoy spectacular and remote locations including Maori Bay in the Marlborough Sounds and Rainbow Station in St Arnaud.
Here at Nelson Honey we can trace our honey back to the hives they came from and our team of beekeepers maintain the health and happiness of all our bees.
There has been much research done on the components of manuka honey, leading to worldwide acclaim of this wonderful honey.
Manuka Honey is unique to New Zealand and its special benefits have been a traditional part of folklore throughout New Zealand’s settled history.
At Nelson Honey, we test all our Manuka Honey for MGO (Methylglyoxal) activity along with other chemical markers to ensure that it is authentic manuka honey. Methylglyoxal is expressed as a minimum number of mg/kg and scientific evidence has confirmed it as being a key compound that occurs naturally in Manuka honey.
While Manuka Honey is extremely well-known for its special properties, our Honeydew Honey has some special characteristics. It contains complex sugars called Oligosaccharides.
