Why is #Manuka so sought after? In a nutshell it’s because the #honey has such high levels of antimicrobial and #antibacterial properties that it can be used internally and externally to treat ulcers, infections, digestive disorders and other immune system difficulties.  http://www.greencompassmag.com/earthbound-honey/

Earthbound Honey places their hives in several of their neighbour’s properties, which requires an affidavit from the site’s owner that they don’t use #pesticides on their land. This may put some people off, but demand for Terry’s #bees has never been higher – thanks to the service they provide.  www.greencompassmag.com/earthbound-honey

“A lot of beekeepers told us we were crazy for going #organic because of the financial risk, but it’s not necessarily about that – it’s about the benefits to the bees,” said Terry. “Happy bees make a happy beekeeper.”  www.greencompassmag.com/earthbound-honey/

My destination was Earthbound Honey, founded in 2006 by husband and wife Terry and Karlene Shaw-Toomey. They started beekeeping as a hobby, but over the years it turned into 300 hives collecting #honey from wildflower pastures, coastal Pohutukawa groves and dense Manuka forests. www.greencompassmag.com/earthbound-honey/
