Whenua first: collected with care from the pristine shores of Kapiti Island

Our hives on Kapiti Island are maintained with the local care and matauranga (knowledge) of a whānau run business focused on sustainability and kaitiakitanga (guardianship).

Kapiti Island is a pristine slice of New Zealand flora and fauna, around 5 kilometers off Paraparaumu, an hour north of Wellington, and is an internationally recognised nature reserve. Our whānau have cared for this national taonga (treasure) since the 1800s.

Our shipping policy

Two things you should know; firstly, shipping is free on all orders over $25. 

Secondly, it's a bit of a swim from Kapiti Island to the Post Office, so we only make it there once every few days. We'll get your order to you as quick as we can - and we'll take the time to make it look good too.
