The rolling hills of Tuapeka to the Catlins
From the rolling hill country of Tuapeka West between Lawrence and Beaumont through to rugged coastlines in the Catlins, grows some of the best clover crops which play an important role in New Zealand dairy farming.
The Lawrence/Beaumont region features a range of wetland areas mixed with rolling farm country. The Clutha river runs pristinely through the region with its emerald green rapids. The Catlins is a wild coastal corner and is known as one of the South Islands most unsung heroes in terms of its beauty and nature.
Clover is a widespread and hardy source of food for bees, which makes clover honey one of the most popular types of honey in New Zealand. There are over 300 species of clover, but the most common is the white clover.
