Lisa Harvests and Jars the Honey from Our Bees

On Friday I had the pleasure to observe how honey is jarred and took lots of pictures to get your mouths watering with excitement for when we get to sell them in our new soon-to-be-built retail shop this spring! With the smell of freshly harvested honey drifting through the air I couldn't wait to get my own jar home and put an extra tablespoon (or two!) in my tea - which was delicious!

Step one is to churn the honey out through a centrifuge and strain it to remove any debris.

Next its time for bottling - a process that requires a lot of patience, a steady hand and a tolerance for getting sticky!

Keep going until the honey runs out or you have no more jars!!
