Honey flow is on

I am proud to have my own label as well as being a part of PIPCO. Maimiti Haven is my own brand and the honey comes from my Hives situated up Melair surrounded by the Rose apple, Mango and Avacado's. All along the rich ground there is abundant small flowering grass. The flowering shrubs of the Lantana the running vines of the passionfruits, The Jesme trees in bloom at certain times of the year. Huddled in abundant clumps of Rauti which blooms prolifically during the winter months. The sweet smell sends the bees in a frenzied dance to capture each drop of nectar.

 

The Coffee in the valley of Jack Williams Valley help to add to the rich taste. "A Taste of Pitcairn"

 

 

 

 

 

fruits and flowers"

 

I have been a

 

Beekeeper for Pitcairn since 1978 and have kept bees since then. I have learnt many things about bee keeping on Pitcairn Island. One was a painful experience of being allergic to bees. After 5 years of desensitizing shots, I still keep bees on Pitcairn and have been helping my fellow Islanders to build their Hives, maintain them and also to help them to raise queens and re queen their hives.

 

In May 1998, the UK Government aid agency, the Department for International Development, funded an apiculture program for Pitcairn which included training for Pitcairn's bee keepers and a detailed analysis of the disease status of Pitcairn bees and honey. As a result, Pitcairn is now able to export honey products to New Zealand and beyond.

 

Pitcairn has one of the most disease free bee populations of anywhere in the world and the honey produced is of an exceptionally high quality. The apicultural scientist conducting the project, also found that Pitcairn bees were a particularly placid variety and within a short time, was able to work with them wearing minimal protection. It would therefore seem that the export of live Queen bees is another potential earner for the Pitcairn Islanders. The numbers of hives on the island is now around 70, with potential for perhaps 3 times that amount.

 

 

Each year the EU requires an extensive test of our Honey for disease and health standards. This is a great must for our clients in Europe.

 

This test is performed in New Zealand.

 

The rich and intense fruitiness of Pitcairn's honey is attributed to the nectar from the Mango, Lata, Passion Flower, Guava and Roseapple flowers found in abundance on Pitcairn.

 

 

Although we do not have the branding of Organic product on our label, Pitcairn Bees are totally disease free and there are an abundance of flowers all through out the year adding to its tantalizing flavours and nutritional values.

 

Thus we are proud to display the product as PURE HONEY.

 

 

There are different labels found on Pitcairn Island Honey Jars. Some of the Honey maybe from the same apiarists.

 

Pitcairn being a small Island in the middle of the pacific to date have a small population of 45people. There are 5 apiarist active with approximately 70 Hives working. These hives produces really well.

 

The peak flow season starts between August to April of each year and if we have a warm winter averaging between 22C-30C then the Honey flow could be year round.

 

 

We ship from Pitcairn 4 times a year. February/March- May/June- August/September- November/December. Please order or enquirer prior to these time tables so your goods can be packaged and mailed to catch the post.

 

 

Pitcairn Island Pure honey is packaged in 250g jars. The price per jar is NZ$12.00. Please go to shop at Maimiti Haven page to order your Honey or contact me by e mail : [email protected]
