About Wild Cape
Bill Savage got his first hive at 12 years of age and 40 years of his passion for beekeeping and the natural environment is undiminished.
Bill and his team of 10 specialist Beekeepers place their hives in the Manuka forests of the Wild East Cape region to gather the honey prized for its natural properties. Bill selects Manuka Forests that produce honey high in the UMF factor and places his hives in these isolated valleys far from the cities and highways.
Once the bees have stored the honey we gently blow them off the boxes of honeycombs and transport these boxes to our base in Gisborne. Operating under strict quality management systems we spin the honey frames to remove the honey so that we can return the combs to the beehives to fill with honey again. This honey is then tested using the UMF grading system to select the finest Manuka honey.
Finally, with great care, we put these quality honeys into jars bearing the Wild Cape Label. All Wild Cape Manuka Honey carries the UMF quality mark.
About the Region
The East Cape Region is the Eastern most tip of New Zealand. First populated by the Maori people who settled there for the warm dry climate, beautiful beaches and abundant seafood.
Geographically isolated by the Raukumara Ranges to the West and the Wharerata Ranges to the south the East Cape region has remained sparsely populated and unspoilt. Gisborne is the administrative centre and the only city located in the region. Large areas of land have been allowed to revert to native Manuka trees that we collect our honey from.
Wild Cape Honey owns Ahititi Forest a huge 1150Ha of manuka forest in the centre of the East Cape region. Ahititi forest is managed using environmentally sustainable practices to produce high UMF Manuka Honey while promoting the steeper portions to return to indigenous forest.
