Wrights Honey (4)
At Wrights Honey, we are collectors of honey, passionate about bees and sharing their honey as nature intended - raw, minimally processed, and enriched with pollen.
Founder, Caleb Wright began beekeeping after being taught by his father who was trailing a new method of extracting honey. What the Wright's discovered was that the eco-friendly method of scraping honey, pollen, and wax directly from the frame not only resulted in supremely rich and delicious honey, but one that is uniquely filled with fermented bee pollen (a.k.a. 'Bee Bread') found only within the hive.
Enriched with Pollen
In Wright's Honey's case, the proof is in the pollen. We sent samples of honey away for certified lab testing, the results came back showing a pollen count in our honey up to ten times higher than the average result for New Zealand honey.
All of Wright's Honey is proudly collected, harvest, and package in New Zealand. We have a simple desire to share with you our pure, premium honey.
Same hive, different honeys
Did you know that th esaem hive can produce different kinds of honey pending the time of the year? When the Manuka flowers are in full bloom, our hives can produce Manuka Honey 500+ level honey. As the flowers die out over the season, the levels of MGO will decrease, producing our 350+ MGO; 100+ MGO and Manuka Honey ranges. When the Manuka finishes Kanuka, clover and other variety's will flower, giving us our Multi Floral honey.
We have our honey independently tested and graded by registered laboratories with every harvest.
Why is high pollen honey so good for you?
Wrights Honey is enriched with pollen know as 'bee bread' - filled with antioxidants, high in protein, and anti-inflammatory, pollen is what bees rely on as a vital source of nourishment for feeding their young.
Our method of scraping everything from the frame collects these granules of goodness and it is mixed through our honey.
Our honey is supremely rich and robust in flavour, our raw, pollen packed honey is collected locally from sites across the North Island of New Zealand. Each jar is uniquely labelled with the batch number and hive location, allowing you to see exactly where your honey comes from.
The Wrights Honey Process
- On-site scraping method collects the honey, pollen + beeswax directly from the honey frame in the field
- The raw honey, pollen and beeswax is transported to our hands-on run processing plant
- The wax is then separated out from the honey using a custom-designed wax press
- This process leaves us with nutrient-dense, pollen-enriced honey, that is independently tested and then bottled for you
Our bees have worked really hard to fill our honey with all sorts of goodness, so we choose not to micro-filter or head our honey. This is because micro-filtering and heating honey to a hight temperature can rob many of the naturally occurring nutrients, and we'd hate for you to miss out.
