Formed in 1973, Nelson Honey & Marketing (NZ) Ltd is a family owned business operated by Philip and Evelyn Cropp. Philip’s grandfather started producing honey from hives in the Nelson area as a sideline to his fruit orchard over 100 years ago. With Philip and Evelyn beekeeping since the 1970's and with Matthew their son beekeeping as well, Nelson Honey brings together 4 generations of beekeeping and honey production experience.
Over the past 25 years the company has grown substantially in production and has diversified into the Natural Health market.
In addition to the NectarEase product range, Nelson Honey also produces Active Manuka Honey and other natural products, the company has continued to maintain a healthy year on year increase of its honey-based products.

How to find us
Based in the South Island of New Zealand, we are 50 kilometres to the south of Nelson township. In conjunction with its sister companies Rainbow Honey Limited and Scenicland Honey Limited, we now have over 4,000 hives sited throughout Nelson, Golden Bay and West Coast areas of NZ's South Island.
Located in the pristine bush and forests of this beautiful part of New Zealand, the hives produce a variety of natural honeys free from insecticide or other agricultural sprays. Research indicates that honey produced in such clean, green environments increases the therapeutic benefits of the bee products (Postmes & Van den Bogaard, 1993).
