Our Story

Our family are passionate about the small area of New Zealand we come from - Queenstown.

Our family are incredibly passionate about New Zealand and Queenstown where we come from.

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. Our region produces some of the most luscious food and drink in the world.

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 wellness honey in the world.

While the land supports the bees, the bees support the diversity of our 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, we decided to call our new thyme honey, Tāima – which means “thyme” in Maori. paying tribute to the Maori people of New Zealand.

The flower Thyme was originally brought into this part of New Zealand from the early Gold Mining pioneers during the 1860’s. Used for its health benefits and wellness as an energy source. 

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.
