The Beekeeper is a brand that says "this is what we do and this is where your honey comes from". The two beekeepers behind it are brothers Tim and William, but we have the support of family advising us, helping out with making hive ware and designing our rad labels and website, we also rope in our mates to help out here and there, for a pot or two of honey of course! We are also lucky enough to be joined by an apprentice this coming season, a hard worker and good company, Lincoln, welcome onboard mate!

Sometimes, when we run short, we also need to grab a drum of honey off other beekeepers, but we make sure the honey is made the way we would our own, by down-to-earth kiwi beekeepers with their hive's interests at the forefront and we make sure that you, as our valued supporters and critics, know where that honey came from and the name of the beekeeper behind it.

It isn't just honey we love though, we think New Zealand is the best place in the world, and because we get into some pretty remote spots, we hope to share them with you, we would like to promote New Zealand to New Zealanders and to the world! In this site, we want to take you on a bit of a trip, into the life of a beekeeper, on the twisty roads we travel, into the beautiful bush-land we enjoy; our catch phrase says it all, for you to Enjoy a Spoonful of New Zealand. Cheers.
