Honey is in the blood of Central Otago beekeeper, Walter – he comes from a long line of apiarists. Beekeeping has been an integral part of Walters family since the turn of the century when they kept hives to pollinate local raspberry crops.

Walter collects two very distinct styles of New Zealand honey – White Clover and Wild Thyme honey. Because of the extreme environment in Central Otago the honey harvest can vary greatly depending on what the weather has in store – Walter keeps a very close eye on his hives and ensures they are placed in the optimum location from year to year in order to harvest exceptional honey!
