Carmen Pearce-Brown and husband, Todd Brown, from Nicholls in the Australian Capital Territory, sell Honey Delight gourmet honeys, honeycomb, honey sweets, and honey skin care products at their happy market stall.
Carmen says you will only find the "cream of the crop" Honey Delight products at the Capital Region Farmer's Market in Canberra.
Honey Delight is the product of three generations of beekeepers. Carmen's brother, David Walker, is an apiarist based in Port Macquarie and is a third generation beekeeper. His bees are located as far south as Boorowa and Cowra in New South Wales. Carmen and Todd's teenage children are also actively involved in the apiary and the venture.
Honey Delight are excited to announce the launch of their 'active' tea tree honey. New Zealand Manuka Honey is from the plant species Leptospermum scoparium. In Australia, we have exactly the same the same plant, the difference is that in Australia we call it Tea Tree. Scientific Studies have found that some Australian Tea Tree honey has the same active properties as the New Zealand “Manuka Honey”. Honey Delight active tea tree honey has been tested by the Sydney University and has a rating of 13-18% phenol equivalent. A UMF rating higher than 10 is considered to have a high activity and is highly active against bacteria. This is why it is called active honey, or a therapeutic antibacterial honey. Honey Delight active honey is equivalent to 15+ Manuka Honey. A 500g jar of Honey Delight active honey sells for $20.
