About Us

SummerGlow Apiaries - A Name to be Trusted

SummerGlow Apiaries Ltd is a family owned and operated New Zealand beekeeping company established in 1976 by husband and wife team, Bill and Margaret Bennett.  
More recently their son, Alan Bennett, and son-in-law, James Jeffery, have joined the company giving the business growth and continuation for many years ahead.
We have been beekeeping for over 40 years and have more than 3000 beehives located in the greater Waikato region, in the pristine bush areas of the northern King Country and in the remote inland Taranaki region of the North Island of New Zealand.
We specialize in the production of high grade UMF16+ Manuka Honey which, for the past 20 years, we send directly to customers worldwide.
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 properties.
Our UMF Licence number 1001 shows our dedication to and historical involvement with this very special honey.

Our Vision:

"To see people worldwide experience the unique qualities of genuine high grade UMF Manuka Honey....because we care!"

Our Own Place:

We are based at Te Kowhai, a small township about 8km northwest of Hamilton.

Our beehives are located throughout the greater Waikato area and in the remote inland King Country and Taranaki areas.

We place our beehives in different geographic regions for different floral types of honey from New Zealand's pristine native bush and lush green farmland.  Our hives produce honey from manuka, kanuka, rewarewa, kamahi, and pasture.

All our manuka honey is produced by our bees from manuka areas which we own and in which we have had hives for the past 40 years. 

Our Own Land:

Bill and Margaret Bennett, founders of SummerGlow Apiaries Ltd, own 1400 acres of manuka-growing land on to which we place our hives for the production of high grade manuka honey.

Our Own Single Source Honey:

All the honey we sell is produced by our bees from manuka areas and native bush areas which we own and in which we have had hives for the past 40 years.   We do not buy honey from any other beekeepers.

We have full control of the quality and purity of all the honey we sell.  We know exactly where our honey comes from.
