Muzzle Station map Muzzle Station, Clarence Valley

Muzzle Station is one of the most remote high-country sheep and cattle stations in New Zealand. This remoteness makes Muzzle Station bees some of the most remote honey bees in New Zealand.

The 30,000 hectare Muzzle Station is located in the Clarence Valley which is nestled amongst the 6000ft Kaikoura Ranges in central Marlborough in New Zealand's South Island. The rugged valley is known for its hot, dry summers and wild landscape. Muzzle Station is only accessible by air in a light plane when the weather is good or by road on a four-wheel drive track during summertime.

J. Friend and Co Manuka Honey is a complex, intense and chewy honey with rich toffee and caramel flavours and coconut, woody, nutty notes. This honey has a slightly bitter lingering finish and a very smooth pleasant texture.

J. Friend and Co Manuka Honey is a perfect ingredient for dressings and marinades or to use as a glaze for strong flavoured fish such as salmon. It is equally delicious as a sweetener in refreshing summertime drinks or combined with creamy Greek style yoghurt. Its good acidity enhances any gingerbread or spicy loaf recipe.
