WildCape is the only single source UMF™ Manuka honey harvested exclusively from the untouched East Cape region.
Geographically isolated by the Raukumara Ranges to the West, the East Cape of New Zealand has remained sparsely populated and unspoiled. The region still has large tracts of virgin forest and a drive along the coast reveals endless untouched sweeping sandy beaches. Often regarded as producing some of the finest Manuka honey in New Zealand, the East Cape region’s Manuka flowers produce nectar which is naturally high in Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a precursor to the compound Methylglyoxal (MGO). The result is Manuka honey with consistently higher UMF™ – and more natural goodness for you to enjoy.
Harvested with Love. WildCape beekeepers journey to some of New Zealand’s most remote areas to source our truly unique Manuka honey. Just before Manuka flowers each Summer we shift our hives from their Winter locations to dense Manuka forest in more than 100 sites along the East Cape coast from Te Araroa to Mahia. After the bees have collected the Manuka nectar and made their precious honey, we carefully gather the boxes and drive these back to our extraction facility in Gisborne. Once the honey has been extracted from each frame, we send samples to Analytica Laboratories for independent testing to verify the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF™) ensuring only the finest Manuka honey makes it into every WildCape jar.
