Last of the summer honey extracted

I got the last of the summer honey extracted and its a nice rich golden color. This batch is from the bees at the bottom of the field here on the farm and was taken from the hives in September.

All the honey is 100% raw and is never heated up to pass through the filters easier…

The honey is removed from the frames with the extractor, then passed through a course strainer to remove large lumps of wax cappings and other debris , then straight into jars ready for sale. It couldn’t be more natural! No heating and no fine filtering!

This last batch filled the 50kg bucket which is around 200 jars…

All I have left to do is press the heather honey and get it jarred and I’m also thinking of trying out the creamer and doing a 50kg batch of creamed summer/heather in a ratio of 2:1.
