The story of our honey
We are always excited to offer our DT's Bees Raw Honey which is ready late January. It takes 12 bees their lifetime to make one teaspoon of honey and it takes approximately one million flower visits to produce 1kg. Luckily we have a lot of bees and a lot of flowers!
Our bees enjoy the flowers in farm pastures, beautiful lifestyle block gardens, berry fields, and neighborhood properties in and around Sandy Knolls, Rolleston, West Melton, Lincoln and Tai Tapu. The main "honey flow" in our area happens from December until late January where the bees will collect nectar, convert it to honey with bee enzymes and dehydrate it. When it's perfect, they will produce a layer of wax to seal it in the cell.
DT monitors the quantity of honey in the hives, and makes sure that there is always enough for the bees - as this is their winter food which they have worked hard for. The surplus is what we harvest, extract and package for you.
We present our raw honey in recyclable 500g or 1kg glass jars. Thank you for choosing DT's Bees honey. You can follow our Facebook page for availability information, and pre-order via messenger or email
