SummerGlow Apiaries Ltd is a family-owned and operated New Zealand beekeeping company run by husband and wife team, Bill and Margaret Bennett, their son Alan Bennett and son-in-law James Jeffery.
We have been beekeeping for over 40 years and have over 2500 beehives located in the greater Waikato region and in the remote inland Taranaki region in the North Island of New Zealand.
When the news came out in 1991 from The University of Waikato about the exceptional properties of UMF Manuka Honey we concentrated our efforts into the production of this exciting and unique honey. This involved establishing meticulous hive management practices to ensure that our manuka honey is as pure as possible and not mixed with other honeys.
In 1995, after realising how little is really known about UMF Manuka Honey and that very little was being done to promote this special honey, we set out to inform people of its natural properties so that people will be better informed when purchasing the honey and those with a need can benefit from it.
In 1995 we established the world's very first website about manuka honey. At that time our website was one of just two honey websites worldwide and the only website about manuka honey.
Since 1995 we have sent our SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey to many thousands of people all around the world.
Sending Genuine New Zealand UMF Manuka Honey Direct from the Producer to the Consumer
We were the very first to differentiate between the two types of manuka honey and the first to make high grade UMF16+ Manuka Honey available to people who could benefit from its unique healing qualities.
Our UMF Licence number1001 shows our dedication to and historical involvement with this very special honey.
"To see people worldwide benefit from the health-supporting properties of genuine UMF Manuka Honey of the highest quality....because we care!"
SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey is 100% pure New Zealand honey. It is produced and packed only in New Zealand.
GM free. Our honey contains no additives or chemicals. We do not feed sugar to our hives so there is no risk of added sugar getting into our honey.

SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey is totally natural and safe. Click here for clinical trial showing natural unadulterated UMF20+ Manuka Honey is safe to use.
All SummerGlow honey is produced by our very own bees foraging on manuka flowers in areas we own and in areas in which we have had hives for over 40 years. This gives us absolute certainty of product traceability, quality and integrity.
Every batch of SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey is tested before and after packing guaranteeing it is totally true-to-label.
The current batches are very high grade UMF17.6; Leptosperin 936.
Leptosperin is a compound found only in manuka honey and is a good indicator of the "manukaness" of honey. The Leptosperin level must be at least 390 for honey to be graded UMF16.
Our current batch has Leptosperin level 936 showing it is really high grade manuka. All our honey is produced by our bees from manuka areas which we own and in which we have had hives for the past 40 years.
The SummerGlow gold seal of quality applied to the white tamper-proof lid of the jar indicates the very high UMF rating of the honey - superior UMF16+ - and that SummerGlow Apiaries are licensed users of the quality trademark "UMF".
We send with every order the relevant UMF Test Certificate for the honey purchased.
Order Double Activity SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey Now
SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey is packed using state-of-the-art advanced technology that preserves and protects the honey's delicate natural enzymes from the damaging effects of heat. (Prolonged heating, as is usual in honey packing, can damage the enzymes in honey).
SummerGlow honey has high levels of both enzyme activity and the special manuka property = Double Activity.
There is evidence that the enzyme activity and the special manuka property have a synergistic effect when working together thereby enhancing the effectiveness of each component.
SummerGlow Apiaries run their hives with meticulous care to ensure the manuka honey they produce is as pure as possible, with as higher content of the special manuka property as possible.
Our apiaries (beehives) are strategically located near extensive areas of manuka bushes, the flowers of which produce the special nectar with the very high levels of the special manuka property.
Our manuka bushes flower just once a year for a short four to six week period from mid December to late January. Weather during this brief flowering period is crucial in determining the amount of manuka honey produced making UMF Manuka Honey a scarce resource.
We do not use any drugs for disease control in any part of our beekeeping operation.
We do not feed sugar to our bees. At the end of each summer we set aside combs of honey which our bees have produced. These combs of honey are fed to our bees throughout winter and spring.
We have developed a unique state-of-the-art honey extraction process which ensures the honey is kept clean, pure and has all its natural qualities.
Our honey is totally pure and natural. It has nothing added and it has not been adulterated by heat or any other means.
You are receiving pure honey of the highest quality.
SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey is totally pure natural honey, it has nothing added. It can be enjoyed as a nice food to help support general health or it can be used for its unique health-supporting qualities.
The attractive gold edged label on each jar of SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey features the photo of a bee busily gathering nectar from a manuka flower.
1. Golden Smooth Granulation.
SummerGlow UMF16+ Manuka Honey is a light golden honey. It is carefully handled to ensure it has a very fine silky-smooth granulation. Granulation is a natural process of honey - to remain runny honey would have to be subjected to high heat and finely filtered. (But high heating destroys the beneficial enzymes).
Some honeys set to a very hard granulation; some honeys have a very coarse granulation. Manuka honey is a softer granulating honey.
2. Herbal Flavour
It tastes great! Our honey is a light golden honey with the unique herbal manuka flavour.
We are very grateful to Dr Peter Molan for his dedicated research and knowledge. Many people worldwide have benefited with much improved health because of his years of passionate study into the healing qualities of honey. Many of these people had previously had conditions for which no other treatment had been effective.
