Saturday was comb honey harvest day! The first step was for the beekeepers to switch out the comb honey frames with some empty frames. This was a two person job so the frames of honey could quickly be removed without the bees getting too mad!!!
The bees are gently brushed off each frame so we do not bring any into the house with us!
Once inside the comb needs to be carefully cut away from the wood frame. A cookie sheet and a cooling rack makes a good base for this.
They are then weighed and recorded and the cover placed on. This is one of the heavier slices weighing in at almost 15oz.
