Honey extraction service is available from July through November. 

To schedule a drop-off time for this year's* supers and let us do all the work (especially cleanup!**)

  

 (*We cannot process honey crystallized in the comb.)

(**We take every precaution possible to prevent the spread of disease (especially American Foulbrood) from one apiary to another.  For an explanation of the sanitary practices in our extracting kitchen, please click this link to view the Facebook Page.)
