About Us

IMG_5069 2.jpeg

DownUnder Honey is a family owned and operated business in the Manawatu, near Cheltenham, New Zealand. We operate hives on over 100 sites in partnership with local landowners and farmers

The bees are sited in different areas to collect honey from flowers of different types, from farmland to make Clover honey, to native bush producing rewarewa and kamahi honey, to remote forests for mānuka honey.

We extract the honey from our beehives and for local beekeepers in our modern premises, under a registered NZ Food Safety Risk Management Programme (RMP) based on HACCP principals. We are regularly audited by AsureQuality on behalf of the New Zealand government to ensure these principals are met.

The Honey Shop
Our honey shop is located only a short 6-minute drive from Feilding in the Manawatu.
We stock a wide range of products from manuka honey, bush honeys, clover honey and beeswax products. We are also stockists of Apicare skin care and HoneySticks.
The Honey shop is shared with the Trees for Bees Nursery where we offer flowering trees and plants for the garden, lifestyle block and farm planting.

Trees for Bees Nursery 

In 2017 we started the Trees for Bees Nursery. We stock over 500 species of trees and garden plants to support bees. We realised there was a need for a central place to buy trees that focus on providing pollen or nectar for bees and birds.


The plant nursery has a range of native, exotic, ornamental and fruit trees as well as a range of flowering Eucalyptus and Willow trees and cottage garden plants. Call in to our shop to check it out or visit the website.
