"At the root of our love for bees; is a deep passion for people"

KINGDOM HIVES & NZ

Our journey has been one of many mistakes to learn from and many successes to celebrate. Kingdom Hives now sell internationally, but holds NZ closest to our hearts. 

We base ourselves in Tauranga, Bay of plenty where we are close to New Zealand's kiwifruit capital; Te Puke. However, our demanding industry takes us far beyond most others with our hives scattered from the Coromandel coastline to the Taranaki ranges. 

The root of our love for bees is a love for people. We are passionate about seeing people thrive and live life to the fullest. So offering a healthy, natural product - which is foraged by millions of our little gatherers, from our pristine natural surroundings - brings us great satisfaction and joy. We back our product 100% and feel very privileged to bee sharing this unique taste of New Zealand with you.
