Our Heritage

The Honey Delight family has an extensive farming heritage dating back the 1800′s.

Our family were among the first farming settlers in northern NSW and beekeeping became a family tradition when our first beekeeper, Frank, diversified into beekeeping in the 1920’s.               

1st Generation beekeeper:

The original beekeeping venture was started in 1928.

Our first beekeeper, Frank, sold honey throughout Australia and also exported his honey as early as the 1960’s.

We continue Franks passion  four  generations later and have used parts of his jar top design in our Honey Delight logo.
