In the 2021 season we were lucky enough to have an exclusive range of Dandelion honey produced.
Our favourite bees surprised us with this naturally granulated gift.
Dandelion honey is said to have the same properties as the dandelion herb.
Our Dandelion honey has come from the biodiverse pastures planted with a variety of herbs and grasses to feed the soil, develop root structure, harness the power of the sun and be nourished by the water from Mount Ngongotaha. This regenerative farming provides a healthy selection of forage for the insects and animals to choose from. One apiary chose the Dandelion at 40% and mixed it with some Kamahi from the bush which nudges at the pasture. It is not common in this part of paradise to have the bees create this unique honey and it is typically only robust colonies that are capable of producing significant volumes of this special dandelion honey.
Dandelion generally symbolizes happiness, joy, health, power, perseverance, endurance, and determination. It is said to represent the sun's power, good wishes, hope and prosperity. Surviving challenges and difficulties with the warmth and power of the rising sun.
All the things we could do with during the struggles of the Covid times. Maybe a spoonful of sunshine is just what is needed.
