Honey bees — wild and domestic — perform about 80 percent of all pollination worldwide, yet bees are in crisis because of habitat loss and pesticides.

Our vision & mission

Buzzstop Honey Centre is a fun and educational one-stop shop where people can immerse themselves in the fascinating life of bees ... and savour a selection of Queenstown and New Zealand's finest honey!

However beneath the fun and yumminess lies a very serious commitment to bees as pollinators with a critical role to play in the future of our planet. 

Our mission is therefore to encourage knowledge and respect for these tiny heroes.

Why are bees so important?

All fruits, nuts and vegetables are pollinated by bees and other insects. That means over two-thirds of the world's top human food crops (which account for around 90 percent of the world’s nutrition) are a direct result of bee's pollination.

Honey bees — wild and domestic — perform about 80 percent of all pollination worldwide, yet bees are in crisis because of habitat loss and pesticides.

Through our small contribution we hope that people will become as passionate about bees as we are, and do their bit to save the habitat of bees, or avoid pesticides.   

Save the Bees!
