It’s been a tough year because of the weather. Spring was wet and cold, and then that hot spell in June gave way to an unsettled summer. The bees did their work though, and we have now removed the surplus honey from the hives. It is a careful skill, leaving the bees with enough for themselves to get through winter. In a reasonable year, a strong colony will generate more honey than it needs, and that is what goes into the jars.
The extraction process is simple, the honey is spun out of the combs, and after filtering flows into the jars. Nothing is added, nothing taken away.
