Our Company

Introducing Mt Lyford Honey, producers of premium superfood honey in New Zealand for over 30 years. Our family business is founded on integrity and quality and we strive to produce trusted New Zealand honey. All our honey is produced and harvested on-site and reaches you fresh from our beehives in its most natural untreated form.

We are third and fourth generation beekeepers, based near Mt Lyford in the beautiful Amuri Ranges in the South Island of New Zealand. Our Mountain Beech Honey apiaries are situated in our fragrant Black Beech Forests where our healthy air is fresh and reviving.

Our Manuka Honey is sourced from the robust Manuka growing in remote areas on our property. Our unique location is clean, green, and beautiful, with sparkling water in natural lakes and rivers nearby, and pristine snow on the surrounding mountain peaks.

Our Bees Are Our Family

BeesFor generations, our family has loved the raw beauty and majesty that can only be found in the mountains and forests of New Zealand. This love of nature includes admiration for one of the most influential and humble of forest dwellers to exist: the humble and hardworking honeybee.

You might ask what is so exciting and dynamic about an insect? The humble honeybee really only does good. It gives 110% in surviving and thriving as well as providing superfood and sustenance that is so vital for health and wellbeing. There is absolutely no waste associated with this admirable life source, as the humble honeybee provides:

  • Honey
  • Propolis
  • Sting (painful to some, helpful to others)
  • Pollen
  • Wax

It is no wonder that beekeeping naturally became a way of life for our family and continues on four generations later, bringing you heavenly tasting, aromatic, trusted New Zealand honey.
