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.

Vipers Bugloss is a sweet delicate honey with a distinctive vanilla taste, light pollen and floral notes and lemon characteristics. It is a good all-round honey. Mild enough for most cooking it will add delicate honey flavours to any dish, sweet or savoury.

Vipers Bugloss is high in fructose and is excellent as a drink sweetener, especially in coffee and tea.

Mild enough for most cooking it will add delicate honey flavours to any dish, sweet or savoury. A good match for strongly-flavoured cheeses such as blues, hard cheese such as aged Cheddar or Parmesan or even pungent washed rind cheese.

Echium vulgare

Vipers Bugloss, (Blue Borage) is a vibrant bluish/purple wild flower that decorates the dry, mountainous hills and valleys in the remote Clarence Valley from May through to November each year.
The name Vipers Bugloss, (Blue Borage) came about from a perceived resemblance between the seeds and a viper's head or the spots on the stem like a viper's skin.
