This is one of our favorite and most exhausting times of the year! However I wanted to share with all of you some of our photos of our honey extraction process. I actually ran into a co-worker at our local “Technology Education Summer Institute for teachers to learn the latest trends in Technology and she was telling me her friend’s husband is a beekeeper and they call it “Sticky Door Knob” season too….however we really need to call it sticky floors, sticky walls, sticky feet season….ha ha it’s crazy!
My husband “The Viking in my life” is drenched in sweat as he had just robbed the hive of its honey and well you have to move fast when you are doing that. I have a movie post coming soon of him robbing the hive so you all can see the action!
We manually uncap the honey before we place it in the extractor that we rent from our local bee keeping club we use a serrated knife for this purpose it is time-consuming but it works well.
We also have a home-made strainer to filter out wax and any undesirable components of the processing. We sell our honey in a raw state which has been minimally processed (Only A Strainer) and we use no chemicals in our Bee Keeping practices whatsoever which makes this honey the best for healing, allergies, and for good health.
We are in the honey………honey!(lilsuburbanhomestead)
