3 Feathers Honey
3 Feathers honey was started by the 3 unique women of the Featherstone family. This part of our family beekeeping unit was developed by Natasha, Heather and Sally-Kay who each play an individual role. The 3 Feathers logo not only represents these 3 unique women but also the 3 generations of Featherstones, with latest addition Henry Featherstone arriving last year.
The beekeeping unit was started by Norman Featherstone, the head of the family and also our head beekeeper. Norman began his beekeeping story in South Africa over 30 years ago, and has transferred that experience into a new business here in New Zealand, starting from one hive 8 years ago. He is assisted in the day to day beekeeping duties by his daughter Sally-Kay, who is studying to be a qualified beekeeper under Norman’s instruction. Norman’s son John works full time and assists with beekeeping on the weekends and busy periods for now.
John’s partner Natasha, originally from the UK and with a strong sales background is responsible for the marketing and sales of the honey.
Norman’s partner Heather is a qualified midwife and nurse full time, whilst also being in charge of the bottling process.
