Welcome to Sherry Valley Honey
Sherry valley honey runs around 1500 hives in the Nelson-Marlborough region, producing varied flavoured honeys such as Manuka-Kanuka, Beech-Honeydew, Clover, Kamahi and sometimes Rata.
Around two thirds of our hives are on farms helping to pollinate farmers pasture, the rest are on DOC estate or Manuka areas. We also use a small number of hives to pollinate orchards in the Tasman area to ensure good quality fruit.

Sherry Valley Apiaries was set up by Jeffrey Lukey in 1979 as a hobby. The business expanded into a full time operation around 1998 spreading from western Nelson into Marlborough and the Sounds. Our hives are located from St Arnaurd in the south through to Kenepuru Sound in the north. We started the Sherry Valley Gold label for our honey which has been very successful….
