June 16, 2018
9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Instructor: Nikki Bowman
It's the sweet part of beekeeping: honey harvest! After a brief review of how bees make honey and how to remove the honey frames from the hive, we'll extract honey from the honey frames using a small extractor and bottle the honey. We'll also discuss storage of honey, and how to use the resulting beeswax cappings. Participants will take home a bottle of honey. No live bees involved. Registration and more information is available at UFM
