Waimarie Manuka Limited Partnership

Waimarie Manuka Limited Partnership

During the last 10 years, overseas demand for New Zealand Manuka honey has driven a 19% p.a. increase in annual honey exports to more than $350 million – this trend has been emphasised during the COVID lockdown with demand growth appearing for high UMF and medicinal Manuka honey.

The health and healing properties of this natural wonder have given rise to a worldwide proliferation of applications, from food and beverage to cosmetics, nutraceuticals and medical dressings.

As the only country where Manuka grows in abundance, New Zealand is uniquely positioned to reap the future rewards from this global phenomenon.

Leading the way is Comvita, New Zealand’s largest honey producer and pioneering exporter of high value New Zealand UMF Manuka honey. The company has a strategy in place to increase the supply of high quality Manuka honey by breeding genetically superior plants and increasing plantings in New Zealand’s best growing locations.

As part of a share farming agreement with Comvita, MyFarm have limited space available to invest in New Zealand’s first large-scale manuka plantation.

Size: Nearly 1800 ha of hill country farmland.
Location: Two properties within the Lower North Island.
Management: Comvita is responsible for development of the Manuka plantation, managing the beehive operation and marketing the Manuka Honey products.
Income: Investors will own the land and receive a share of the honey revenue and carbon credits.
Returns: This opportunity forecasts quarterly cash returns at rates similar to bank deposit in the next four years, rising to double digits as the plantation matures and starts to produce carbon credits. Returns have commenced with the next payment June 2020. 
Minimum Investment: $100,000 (10 Units).
Development status:  Development is in progress (Dillon is fully planted and 400 ha at Manawaimai to be planted autumn / winter 2020).
Offer status: Less than 20 Units remaining.
