Our Taonga - Our Products

Nau mai, haere mai! Welcome! 

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 native tree honeys from our vast untouched forests in Te Urewera – homeland of our tribe Tūhoe.

Exquisite honeys – taonga in taste and texture - magical Mānuka, stunning Rewarewa and rare Tāwari.

For discerning honey-lovers in New Zealand first, as well as across the globe.

Manawa, from the heart.

The Manawa Story

Mānuka Honey: Magical!

Latest News: Award winning musician Maisy Rika loves Manawa honey!

This is what Maisey Rika says about our honey:

"The best honey is from Te Urewera e te Iwi (people) !!! So good 💚"

Last week the beautiful Maisey blessed Ruatāhuna and our school with her presence. She was here to inspire and work with our students who enjoyed singing and composing with her.

The school gave her some of our honey as a gift for her contributing in the area she knows best - music!
