Our Story

Our Story

Our family are passionate about the small part of New Zealand they come from - Queenstown.

The McCammon family passionate about New Zealand and Queenstown where they come from. They have been showing this piece of paradise to visitors from around the world for the past 39 years.. With the borders closed, and no visitors, they wondered: what next?

If they couldn’t bring international visitors to Queenstown, maybe they can take Queenstown to the world.

Our landscape is breathtaking and there is so much to see. But more than the stunning landscape, Queenstown brings so much to your taste buds as well. Queenstown produces some of the most luscious food and drink in the whole of New Zealand.

Our beekeepers are equally passionate about the land and Bees are a vital part of the ecology of the land. Our bees feed off natural flowers, creating some of the best honey in the world.

While the land supports the bees, the bees support the diversity of the land. Truly the essence of New Zealand in microcosm.

Our family realized that honey could be a unique way to bring New Zealand to the world. To be true to New Zealand and its history, they decided to call the new thyme honey, Tāima – which means “thyme” in Maori.

The flower Thyme was originally brought into this part of New Zealand from the early Gold Mining pioneers during the 1800’s. Used for health benefits due to the very harsh living conditions bearing in mind that these early gold miners lived beside rivers and large rocky mountains panning away to try and make a living.

When Tāima was brought to the Queenstown area during the gold rush of the 1860’s it moved into the environment where it now grows wild and organic throughout.

Tāima Honey represents the kindness and collaboration between humankind and the nature. Brought to you in a jar.
