WANUKA Premium Honey 500g
Our “organic” WANUKA Premium Honey
There are many factors involved in the creation and extraction of Wanuka Premium Honey. Of course, bees fly into the urban environment and to wherever they find something, so even we cannot fully control whether our bees only fly over organically farmed areas and plants from gardens and neighbours.
Basically, however, it can be said about our premium honey that we will not advertise an organic certificate on the jars as a matter of principle, because it is simply unnecessary. In our opinion, with a product that is 100% natural we do not need to tell our consumers that it is 100% natural. The Premium Wanuka Honey is, together with our bees, the link between the hobby gardeners and the environment that is necessary for the fertility of the plants. Therefore, as beekeepers, we cannot help but support an ecological environment that is free of harmful pesticides and insecticides for our bees.
However, our first-class city honey is generally less polluted with pesticides than in rural areas, as the gardeners themselves usually use less pesticides than conventional farmers. In addition, the bees visit unspoiled plant species that grow on balconies, traffic islands, curbs or as weeds on the edges of houses.
Our variety is called ‘city’.
Usually the name of the variety is declared that identifies each honey. Our city bees collect the nectar demonstrably in the same period and in the same region. Our natural honey is absolutely regional and we completely avoid honey admixtures which could come from EU and/or non-EU countries.
The blossom honey
In the case of the blossom honey variety, taste, smell, consistency and colour depend on the nectar collected. The honeybees prefer summer plants such as sunflowers, raspberry bushes, lime trees or lavender. Wanuka Premium Flower Honey tastes from sweet to savoury and the colour is usually golden yellow.
Due to climatic conditions, planting and flowering time, our natural honey is always a little surprise. Test the quality of our premium honey – we promise! It is regional, it is healthy, it tastes great. It comes from pure handcraft.
500g pleasure with a clear conscience
In our production the honey is not heated or artificial substances are added so that the honey tastes exactly the same every year. The honey varies in taste just like the weather from year to year. Because sometimes there is more lime tree, because the blossom and the weather were particularly good, sometimes there is more acacia. However, our bees collect what they can to search for the purest possible nectar and thus give us an unmistakable, naturally pure honey. Our premium honey has only 16% water content and is therefore matured for a very long time in the beehive. This honey is filtered and filled into our unique Wanuka Honey Glass. The result is a premium honey that is second to none.
Honey bees are the new pets
Bees are among the most important farm animals, along with cattle and pigs. Unfortunately, however, the number of bee colonies is constantly decreasing. The reasons for the acute bee mortality are possibly the extensive use of pesticides, monocultures and the introduction of the Varroa mite. In order to counteract this development, the idea matured to establish a city beekeeping in Wanne-Eickel. In the meantime our project has been crowned with success and the yield has become so great that we can internationalise our distribution channels.
Environmental education made easy with Wanuka Premium Honey
With the purchase of every single glass you support regional kindergartens and primary schools. We take children as well as educators into the fascinating world of honey bees. Bees are of great importance for most of our different ecological systems. Both wild and honey bees are threatened in their habitats. It is important to us to introduce children to the fragile world of the small pollinating insects.
In an informative, playful and creative way, children will learn about the biology of bees and their ways of life. They also learn about the importance of bees for us humans, how we benefit from their pollination and where we can help so that there will soon be more flowering habitats for wild and honey bees.
In order to meet the demands of teachers and educators as well as children of different ages, the sale of this jar is an investment in the development of these project days, thus promoting bees in a sustainable way in the long term.
