Cool Dad Job: Honey Maker
Cool Dad Vibe: Beach Boy
Cool Dad Bona Fides: Had Harwood merely taken the time to build a sustainable honey company in New Zealand — one that doesn’t dilute its product or screw over its beekeepers — that would have been cool enough. But Harwood, who runs Activist Mānuka with his wife, Gabrielle Mirkin, a former Vogue staffer, takes cool a step further. He goes surfing with his beekeepers, holds meetings on the beach, and is working to save the local environment — all while making damn good A-grade raw Mānuka honey. And when he’s not riding waves or scraping honeycombs, Harwood is caring for his son, Francisco River. So, yeah, he’s good at names too.
