PRODUCTIVE BEES

As we have mentioned before, here at the ATprojects Centre we look after a number of beehives and every now and then we see the rewards of looking after these bees. This week we collected almost 20kg of honey from only eight beehive frames, this was a tremendous harvest and to make the work of harvesting the honey easier we sometime ago purchased a simple hand operated honey extractor [see picture]. While we do keep some of the honey for ourselves and some for our accommodation facility most of this honey and the honey that will be harvested over the next few weeks will be sold to the major honey distributor in the Highlands.
