Honey For Sale

We harvested some honey from one of our older hives.  This is a first for us.  Taking the honey and actually extracting the honey with a honey extractor which is a big stainless steel centrifuge for honey frames.  It pulls the honey out of the honeycomb by force leaving the empty comb undamaged relatively so it will be easier for the bees to refill the comb.  The bees won't have to draw out new comb they can just fill these cells.  We wanted something handmade for our labels.  We spent a bit of time hand-carving on wood blocks and printing our labels.
