WildCape is the only single source UMF Manuka honey harvested exclusively from the East Cape region of New Zealand to your home.
To you, from paradise.
Every jar of WildCape Manuka Honey proudly carries the UMF mark and has been independently tested and certified by the UMF Honey Association of New Zealand to assure quality and purity. WildCape UMF 15+ Manuka Honey contains at least 514 mg/kg of Methylglyoxal (MGO).
Often regarded as producing the finest Manuka honey in New Zealand, Manuka flowers in the East Cape region produce nectar naturally high in Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a precursor to the compound Methylglyoxal (MGO). The result is Manuka honey with consistently higher UMF and a delicious, mild flavor for you to enjoy.
Visitors call it ‘off the beaten track’. Locals call it paradise. Geographically isolated by the Raukumara ranges to the west, the East Cape of New Zealand has remained sparsely populated and unspoiled. The region still has large tracts of virgin forest and a drive along the coast reveals endless untouched sweeping sandy beaches.
40 Years of Experience
If you follow the long, winding coastline along New Zealand’s East Cape, you’ll find a region of raw, natural beauty, where Bill Savage has been tending to his bees with a lifelong devotion that spans more than four decades. It’s a place where time moves slower, days last longer and waves roll on forever.
BENEFITS & USES
Manuka honey comes from the nectar of the flower of the Manuka bush (leptospermum scoparium) which is indigenous to New Zealand. It is this special nectar and the bee that give Manuka honey its unique properties. Manuka honey is highly sought after for the following reasons – the Manuka flower only produces nectar for 3-4 weeks a year, Manuka honey includes signature compounds not available in other types of honey, and because the unique properties of Manuka honey are well understood by consumers around the world.
