Canaan Honey – more than just a shop, its an experience

Be inspired by a visit to our Honey Shop on the outer edge of Whanganui City where town meets country, just 6 minutes drive from the middle of town.

Take time to amble along our cottage garden walkway and enjoy our floral array of garden pots and hanging baskets which are always changing with the seasons.

On entering our shop you will be met with a strong honey aroma that has been absorbed by the very walls surrounding you. You can bring your own favourite honey pot to be filled with our carefully crafted artisan honey or buy it ready packed from our shelves, while enjoying some relaxing background music. Make sure you taste and see that the honey is good – dig a spoon in and sample our honey for sale harvested from city and countryside.

Using all the skills that we have gained from 40 years of beekeeping, we are confident that every pot you take home will be a prize winner for texture and taste.

We love to chat with our customers about the inspiring nature of our bees and the incredible way they make such delicious honey. We love to talk of our creator God who made the heavens and the earth and everything in it so marvellously.
