On chilly winter days, there's nothing quite like a drizzle of your favourite local honey on toast, in a cup of tea or on homemade crumpets to perk you up. For honey entrepreneurs and Christchurch residents Sharyn Woodnorth and Jeremy Friend, honey is much more than simply their condiment of choice.
The duo behind the celebrated local honey J.Friend & Co. had previously dabbled in the Manuka honey industry in Auckland, but credit their move down south as the catalyst to their true honey venture.
"Sampling delicious honey offerings from roadside stalls proved to a foodie like Sharyn, irresistible," explains Jeremy. "It was like nothing we'd ever tried before – natural, pure and regionally distinct; these were honeys that spoke of their environment. By the time we reached Christchurch, the business plan had been imagined and J.Friend and Co was born."
Since its conception, J.Friend and Co. now boasts an impressive 12 different blends of artisanal New Zealand honey, each as unique and inspired as the next. This week, we're giving away three conveniently squeezy bottles of Manuka, Beechwood and Kamahi blend and three bottles of Beechwood Honeydew.
J.Friend & Co.'s honey is 100 per cent raw and unpasteurised, meaning nothing has been added or removed. Conveniently packaged in a non-drip, squeezable bottle, we guarantee these beautiful honey blends will sweeten even the gloomiest of grey winter days.
