Classroom - Barn F

Join us for a taste of honey and learn about harvesting honey from the hive. There will be an overview of when, what and how to harvest. This workshop will cover both the ‘crush and strain’ and extraction method (which uses centrifugal force to spin honey out of the combs). We will also discuss how to properly store your honey, different container options and ways to use your honey. Honey harvesting is usually not recommended with first year beehives, but if you are anxious to learn how it works, it’s never too early to start practicing!
