Mills Farm

Manuka Honey

Collected from Manuka Honey producing bees in an ecologically clean area in Northland, New Zealand
Because of its long isolation from the rest of the world and its island bio-geography, New Zealand has extraordinary flora and fauna.

Manuka Tree

About 80% of the flora occurs only in New Zealand, one being the Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium). Its intensely scented flowers bloom in Summer, and bees love them.
