Clover honey is one of the most popular honey varieties produced in New Zealand. There are many different tastes to Clover honeys that are produced throughout New Zealand. We are fortunate to be able to produce a high quality product from this area due to the major clover cropping zone that is farmed in this region. The product is renowned for its mild flavours, sweetness, versatility and great colour, we endeavour to supply the Market with the best Clover honey we can produce. Our Clover honey has a smooth and silky texture, this is due to the fine crystals that form in the honey during the creaming process. There are no additives used in the creaming process of any New Zealand honeys, they are all pure products.
