What is Beechwood Honey Dew and why should I try it?
Beechwood Honey Dew, our 'Hero' of Honeys is produced on the foothills of the majestic southern alps in the South Island of New Zealand. We love Honey Dew and are passionate about getting the word out about it's extraordinary health benefits.
This honey contains a higher antioxidant, antibacterial activity level, mineral content and greater nutritional and therapeutic benefits than most regular flower honey.
