Quick to burst into gruff, infectious laughter, Rob Murray is a reality television dream. Together with his wife Lon, they operate Tai Tokerau Honey, a whānau-owned business struggling against corporate giants in the competitive global mānuka honey market.

Honey Wars drops into their world following two tough seasons, due to changing weather conditions, a few high risk investments and increased demand on suitable land. Their can-do attitude, charisma and community kaupapa are inspiring, as the crew search for homes for their hives in increasingly extreme places. Heart-warming, with heaps to learn about the fascinating world of beekeeping.
