Birch Hill

Birch Hill Limited Partnership

With annual exports now in the vicinity of $470 million, spectacular growth in global demand for UMF Mānuka honey products has elevated New Zealand’s position as one of the world’s highest earning honey producers.

MyFarm’s latest offer is an investment in a 545 hectare Mānuka forest at Pongaroa. It’s the first stage in the development of a 1000 ha portfolio of forests planned for the lower and central North Island during the next two years.

In partnership with Comvita, New Zealand’s leading producer of Mānuka honey products, the new syndicate will undertake substantial development of the property and receive a share of honey revenue and carbon credits.

Under a share farming agreement, Comvita will supply new generation Mānuka plants bred specifically to produce higher quantities of DHA – a key component of high UMF Mānuka honey. The company will also manage forest development and provide beekeeping services.

Size: Stage 1 – purchase of 545 hectares at Pongaroa in the Tararua district. Stage 2 – suitable properties to be added to the portfolio within 2 years.
