Manawa: Honey From The Heart

video thumbnail honey from the heart

Manawa means ‘heart’. And that’s what drives us.

We’re from Ruatāhuna at the Heart of Māui’s Fish – the North Island of New Zealand. The purest place on earth.

We have built our honey business to sustain our people with jobs and good health, and to keep bees for what they do for our place and this planet. We specialise in producing the best native tree honeys from our vast untouched forests in Te Urewera – homeland of our tribe Tūhoe.

Check out the video for more about Manawa Honey and our founder, the Tuawhenua Trust.
