Bay of Islands Honey Shop, Kerikeri

4.5
#4 of 12 in Shopping in Kerikeri
Visitors of all ages will be amazed by New Zealand's largest beehive. This built-to-scale structure contains an actual working colony of honeybees. Those brave enough to enter can witness first hand how bees build their home and store honey inside.

Plenty of delicious and delightful honey-related goods are for sale in the shop. Hand-made beeswax candles, honey cosmetics, and a wide range of giftware is available alongside locally produced honeys, including comb honey cut straight from the hive (and the honey tasting table provides free samples!) Natural health products include pollen, royal jelly, propolis, and bee venom.

Children will love the teddy bears and Buzzy Bee range and they may even be lucky enough to spot the giant Buzzy Bee! All will be tempted by sweet treats including honey fudge and hokey pokey and guests can finish their visit with a delicious honey ice cream, soon to be a local favourite!

Beekeeping equipment and courses available.

Discover New Zealand's biggest beehive. Enter if you dare!
