Late Summer 2020 Honey

We’re slowly winding down our honey season, and every year, I’m a little sad to clean out the extractor one last time and start winter prep for the bees.  There may be another batch or two to go, but the photo above shows the last four honeys we bottled, batches F, FH, G, and H (left to right).  Batch FH is from the Flow Hive, and while we usually split this into a few batches, the frames were remarkably similar this year, so we just combined it into one large batch this time.

The bees have done a tremendous job this year in spite of the weird, slow Spring, dry June, and then the incredibly hot days we’ve had.  It’s a lot of work every year to process all that honey, but seeing those jars all lined up and the amazing array of different colors is what truly makes all the hard work worth it in the end!  We hope to see you out at the Pine Creek Hayloft on Friday, September 11th from 10a-5p, and hopefully in October as well (date TBD).  In the meantime, we hope you’re enjoying the last bit of Summer we have left!
