COVID-19: Discover Poronui's COVID-19 policies and procedures
The Story of Bees
Poronui is the home of Tāku Mānuka honey

This is the complete hive-to-plate experience with one of our very knowledgeable and passionate staff.

The Poronui hills are blanketed in native mānuka plants. The elevation of the property means that during the short flowering season, mānuka is the only pollen source for our bees. This results in some of the purest and highest quality mānuka honey in New Zealand.

Learn about every aspect of bees and honey making, from how the colonies function and the special roles of the different bees, to beekeeping and honey production. You’ll taste a wide range of native New Zealand honeys and learn about their special properties. There’s even an opportunity to dress as a beekeeper and visit a working hive.
