Honey - local honey very soon!

Posted by Greg Whyte on 7 November 2015

Rick the bee keeper says that there is honey there now ready to go but he won't touch it until the next honey box is full - between a week to 2 weeks.

Our bee keeper arrived today to add on a honey box , some honey frames and a queen bee excluder. You will see from one of the images the bee keeper holding out a frame loaded with honey - he estimates approx 2kgs of honey in that frame alone.

Queen excluders are used to maximise the amount of honey able to be extracted from the hive.The purpose of a queen excluder is to keep the queen and her grubs out of the harvestable honey. In one of the images you will see Rick with a yellow sheet - that is the queen excluder and he has added it to the hive..
