This story began with weeks of a stubborn sore throat. Fed up and as a last resort I decided to try the much talked about, and often maligned, manuka honey. Within a few days the sore throat, and most of the honey, had disappeared. I was astonished and delighted. The more people I talked to the more extraordinary stories I heard – my manuka journey had begun!
In an attempt to hunt down more of this wonder drug I soon began to realise what a minefield that was. The choice was good, bad and very indifferent, overwhelming, expensive and confusing.
This treasure hunt took me via a string of old friends and bizarre coincidences to Hawke’s Bay, a stunning region on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island and to two extraordinary individuals who I am now proud to call friends.
We covered acres and acres of glorious rugged landscapes and remote outreaches meeting landowners, beekeepers and tending the hives. I learnt a little of what they know and do and began to understand just what makes this honey so special and why it is so hard to produce.
I was a convert and Manuka Direct was born! I can truthfully say that it is a genuine privilege to be able to share with you the very best Manuka Honey that money can buy….straight from those kiwi bees to you.
STRAIGHT FROM THE HONEY BEES IN NEW ZEALAND … TO YOU
