  • Happy New Year
    Happy New Year All!
    I hope you had an amazing break and are nice and energized for the New Year and all that it will bring. We sure had a good time with a few of us going away. Those who stayed could be found enjoying the buzz that is Taupo at this time of the year, or pottering around in the garden.

  • November News
    After our 2 year journey to become more sustainable, we are excited to look at what comes next. A recent focus has been to source products from companies that use sustainable practices. The fascinating outcome is finding that there are so many NZ companies with a similar philosophy who also have their community and environment in mind. This is really encouraging for us and great for you all as part of our wider community.

    Every year this happens, we wake up one day and spring fills the air. The bulbs and blossoms are in full flow, the days are suddenly longer, the air feels warmer and the light in the sky is different; an awesome time to be alive!!!

  • We are making a difference and we are seeing the results!
    Events over recent weeks and months in many places, involving many different sorts of people and affecting huge numbers of fellow human beings are a driving force in the world we currently live in. We have been discussing the influences on our lives and work here at Huka Honey Hive. One of the main topics has been how can we be influencers for good things in the world as we are convinced there is more good stuff happening than bad and we want to increase that.

  • Winter is a season of preparation and recovery
    A big hello to you, our people who are part of the bigger picture of Huka Honey Hive’s sustainability and community initiatives. Thanks for taking the time to read our blogs and for being part of our journey towards assisting those who are disadvantage. We achieve this through our work each day.
    We are enjoying winter, and we love seeing you all come in and sit with a coffee in front of the fire. Our hope is that each visitor learns some more about the importance of bees, and enjoy tasting our extensive range of artisan honey.
