wild cape honey
Bill Savage has been fascinated by bees since he got his first beehive, aged 12. Forty years later, Bill now has over 5000 hives across 110 sites in the East Cape region of New Zealand.
Bill is passionate about people and the East Coast. By employing only local beekeepers under a profit share arrangement, he ensures every jar of WildCape is helping support the local community. The long-term relationships and profit share agreements he has with landowners of the Manuka forest is another example of WildCape giving back to the region Bill loves.
WildCape is a single source UMF™ (Unique Manuka Factor) Manuka honey harvested exclusively from the untouched and unspoilt East Cape region of New Zealand.
Unlike Manuka honey from other regions which can have a strong flavour and bitter aftertaste, Manuka honey from the East Cape region is highly regarded for its delicious mild flavour.
Manuka flowers in the East Cape region produce nectar which is naturally high in Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a precursor to the compound Methylglyoxal (MGO), resulting in Manuka honey with consistently higher UMF™ levels.
Available in 3 UMF ratings; 8+, 10+ and 15+
