Uncapping a Frame
After removing the frames from the hive, we use a hot knife to melt the wax caps holding the honey in the comb.
Different Pollen Sources
This frame is an interesting example of how different pollen sources can be. To the left we see a much lighter type of pollen than what was used to create the honey on the right.
Frame Extractor - Removing Honey
After the caps are removed, the frames are spun in an extractor to remove the honey. A sticky, but very tasty process!
Draining and Straining Honey
After being extracted from the frames, we drain and strain the honey. The only thing we remove are the larger pieces of beeswax, nothing more. We want the honey to remain as close to its raw form as possible. We will have some available to try and buy soon. We hope to see you!
