We were really thrilled to have a completely capped super ready to harvest recently. I was especially excited as I was eager to try out my birthday present – an extractor!
The wax cappings have to be scraped away before loading the frames into the extractor.
Look at those golden droplets flying out of the wax combs.
Running the honey out of the extractor, into the filter. Once the honey had been filtered we left it to settle before bottling it.
The finished product.
We’ve had some fun designing labels. A came up with a couple of her own designs.
She was feeling enterprising, so set up a little stall on our drive. Of course the honey with her labels outsold mine!
