About KĀRE Honey
KĀRE specialise in hand crafted Northland single source Manuka Honey
Kare specialise in single source Manuka Honey from the beautiful Northland region. This subtropical region is home to stunning beaches, pristine native forests and to Tane Mahuta, the world’s largest Kauri tree and known as the God of the Forest.
Our region is the first area in NZ where the Manuka flowers bloom towards the end of winter when there are very limited floral sources. This means the bees, for a period of time, almost exclusively forage on Manuka flowers, creating a very pure and high-quality honey. This purity is evident in the rich dark caramel colours and depth of flavour and intensity of our Manuka honeys.
Kāre was developed with the intention of sharing the benefits of the healthy food produced here in New Zealand.
We live in rural New Zealand and are lucky enough to produce and have access to food that keeps us naturally healthy.
We believe that having access to quality nutritional food should be a fundamental right of all people.
Many consumers are becoming concerned about the safety of their food – they want to know where and how their food has been produced, and what environmental & social factors have impacted on the safety and health of it.
New Zealand we are in a unique position to be able to produce and source food that is grown naturally, providing optimum goodness and natural health benefits. At Kāre we pride ourselves in knowing the history of our food, and we can share this story with you.

Manuka Honey is the honey that New Zealand is famous for. Bees gather the nectar from the white-pink flowers of our native Manuka tree and from this they make Manuka Honey.
