Molokai Meli is a small family owned and operated apiary located on the remote Hawaiian island of Molokai. The isolation of our island has proven to be a blessing as we do not have many of the diseases common in mainland apiaries.

We specialize in gourmet organic Kiawe honey. Our gourmet honey is available in specialty 6.5 oz. gift jars as well as our popular Meli Stix.

Due to the ever decreasing number of kiawe forests, our honey is in limited supply; and due to the exotic flavor, it is in high demand. Please be patient if we have sold out.

Every member of the Kaneshiro family has his or her part to play from honey tasting experts to beeremoval professionals. We feel blessed to have a business that allows us to work together, support ourselves, and have fun in the process! Our apiaries are set up on the remote Hawaiian island of Molokai in the heart of thriving kiawe forests. This is our secret for producing the pure gourmet kiawe honey that comes fromMolokai Meli.Meli is the Hawaiian word for honey. As our name shows, we are all about local honey.

Because we live on an isolated island, we have been able to keep mainland diseases (like mites) from entering our apiaries. We are committed to the health of our colonies as well as those in all of our islands. We have been able to develop our apiaries from 100% local Molokai bees that we have relocated from wild hives. We know of no other apiary that has hand-picked all of its hives from the wild. As you can see, our bees are pretty special to us. We think you'll agree that their honey is pretty special, too.
