    How cool! My uncle kept bee's and I always wanted to try it. You going to sell any? I'll take a small jar

    Awesome! It looks so nice. I love seeing honey thats loaded with little particulates. I hate seeing the ultra filtered stuff.

    I had one wild hive drop into some old hives at my parent's house this spring.
    I sorted through and made the best stack I could out of all of the weathered supers.
    I'm hoping for a few frames of honey this year. not enough to bust out the centrifuge though.

    Thanks for bringing back memories of my Grandpa! He had a hand crank extractor that he would let me crank, then reverse directions. Nothing like the smell of fresh honey!

    Now that's liquid gold, and it can bee consumed! Very nice.

    I have always wanted to have bees, but have never been able to make it happen. Enjoy your honey.

    There is a reason for the ultra filtered honey. When you filter out all the pollen you can't determine the source of the honey. So Chinese honey which is not allowed to be imported into the US gets filtered, shipped to a third country and then imported into the US as non chinese honey. A third of our honey is imported and much of it is mislabeled Chinese honey.

    Bees and Honey are always interesting! But, how in the world are you doing that with all of those braces you are wearing. Don't overdo it!
