Southern North Island Beekeeping Group Ltd

A Brief History of the Area

The Southern North Island region covers the bottom half of the North Island. From White Cliffs just north east of New Plymouth in Taranaki to the base of Mt Ruapehu across to and down the Ruahine Ranges to the Manawatu Gorge and then across to the East Coast. This vast area has different climatic zones and produced different floral types of honey as can be expected.

Beekeeping has changed a lot since the inception of the group as now beekeepers are faced with the treatment of disease and verroa mite infestations as well as poor seasonal honey crops
