Honey Harvest

This past Sunday I went with my Dad and Brother and gathered up 6 completely full frames of honey. The end result was 2 gallons, about 25 pounds, of liquid gold! After a few years of bee-keeping this was well worth the wait. I'm so grateful to my husband and family for being so incredibly supportive with this little hobby of mine. When my Dad bought me my kit for Christmas, I had no idea the learning process we were all taking on. I'm so happy to be able to share this hobby with him in particular, it's something really special as Father and Daughter :) 

Can't wait to give honey away to family and close friends, along with beeswax lip balm I will be making soon. 

Here's to my ladies, they worked so hard to make all this honey! and here's to many more years of bee-keeping.

Bee Installation Video

This footage was taken May, 2014. I am happy to say that I had a successful year with this package, despite a few mishaps, and the ladies made it through the winter strong! I will post more on that later, but I hope you enjoy my video! 

If you'd like to see a more explanatory video, I found this video really helpful.
