Extracting Honey from 2 Bee Hives.

~
This is my first year with Honey Bees and this is my first Honey Extraction.
I got 1.25 gallons of Pure, Golden, Beautiful Honey!!! I'm happy as a Bee!!!

Final Honey Bottling is here --->

Special thanks to Sadie for lending me her brand new "Honey Extractor"!!!
And to Bill Eisele and Mike for mentoring me with the Bees and in this process...
And also, to Erin, for being my 2nd set of hands and helping me!!!

Perhaps, Consider Rearing Honey Bees in your Back Yard or Garden!!!
