About Nelson Honey
Nelson Honey draws on three generations of beekeeping and honey production experience to offer you the best New Zealand bee products. Formed in 1973, family-owned company Nelson Honey & Marketing (NZ) Ltd is owned and operated by Philip Cropp. Philip’s grandfather started producing honey from hives in the Nelson area as a side business to his fruit orchard more than 100 years ago.
Over the past four decades the company has grown substantially, from a one-man apiary producing a small selection of honeys in Motupiko, 50kms south of Nelson city, Nelson Honey is now a large employer in the region with operations in Motupiko, Tapawera, the Marlborough Sounds, and Hokitika on the West Coast.
We produce natural products with no ‘nasties’, passing on all the natural goodness to you. We look after the land and support maintaining a pristine environment for our bees to feed and prosper in. Placed in the pristine bush and forests of this beautiful part of New Zealand, our hives produce a variety of natural honeys and bee products free from insecticide or other agricultural sprays. We pride ourselves on our beekeeping and honey production practices.
Research indicates that honey produced in such clean, green environments increases the therapeutic benefits of the bee products (Postmes & Van den Bogaard, 1993) and we pride ourselves on our range of natural products that are all designed to help you feel and look great thanks to the magnificent honeybee.
