Gathered from over 4,000 hives in the wild and remote native forests of the West Coast region in the South Island of New Zealand, Happy Sheep Honey prides itself to be one of the most unadulterated wild honeys available today.
The range includes a selection of four unpasteurised honeys – West Coast Honey, Active Manuka 12+ Honey, Lemon & West Coast Honey and Strawberry & West Coast Honey. Happy Sheep Honey is sourced from artisanal beekeepers with generations of experienced.
Like fine wine, the taste and aroma of each batch of Happy Sheep Honey can vary depending on the vintage and the exact hive location.

Health benefits of honey:
Apart from its great taste, honey has many health benefits.
Honey contains antioxidants, which can be helpful to boosting immunity. For food writers/bloggers, it is important to build a strong immune system, especially after the consumption of deep-fried and artery-clogging foods.
Honey is a time-honoured way to soothe a sore throat, and is good for the digestive system.
Containing traces of Vitamins, B and C, as well as minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium among others, using honey as a natural remedy is not just an old wives’ tale.
