Latest News

We have had confirmation that we are able to continue shipping out honey products during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Our facilities are on our home property, so we are able to pack and send directly without contacting anyone outside our home bubble. Because we are rural, we have changed to CourierPost to be able to send directly without leaving the property, however it may take a little longer for packages to get to you, so please allow a couple of days for your order to arrive.

We are still offering free shipping on all Palmerston North orders over $20 - they're just coming by courier instead of being hand-delivered.
