ABOUT US

MANOA HONEY & MEAD

As beekeepers, artists, and mead-makers, we are deeply appreciative of Nature’s wonders. In honor of Nature’s gifts, we hone our crafts within the “Golden Triangle”— the special relationship between plants, bees, and mankind. 

Yuki and Erika from Japan own and run Manoa Honey & Mead which originally was founded in Mānoa valley in late 90's. Since 2014 inception, we have put our passion into producing the finest products which now expands its line-up from raw honey to honey infusion, specialty hive products and to Oahu's one and only- Hawaiian craft mead.

Our Bees, Our Honey

Our raw Hawaiian honey are created from the elements of paradise. Lush tropical flowers, island sunshine, gentle showers, trade winds, and mauka rainbows — all contribute to their unique taste.

We harvest some of the world’s best honey from the most remote islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. We raise bees all around O’ahu. Hot, dry west side of O’ahu is a prime location for our White Kiawe Honey. On the other side of the island, our bees forage on Christmas Berry blossoms near the coastline of the North Shore.  We harvest fresh bee pollen daily in central O’ahu.  Every apiary has unique flora that offers special and distinguish honey flavors.  

Our Mead

In 2020, we launched our first batch of mead to local Hawaii market. 

We use Hawaiian honey and tropical fruits to make mead, that is crisp, fruity and refreshing with light bubbles which is perfect to enjoy in the Hawaiian climate.   

We are one of the few mead producers who use own honey to craft the mead.  See what's available online.
