How to open your bottle!
Use a paring knife to draw a line through the wax where the cork and glass meet. (You can see the cork through the wax).
Without cutting the cork, cut through the wax until you can lift up the cork.
No need to take all the wax off! Just cut that line where the cork meets the glass and the cork will easily come out.
Enjoy the honey!
This is our FIFTH YEAR of beekeeping ~ and every year is DIFFERENT! Some years we harvested over 200 pounds of honey! 2022 has been hot and dry, but even with three hives, we have harvested 200 pounds of honey. We need to leave 100 pounds per hive for the bees to overwinter!
Honey, Wax and More
Harvesting Honey is MESSY! The smell is
amazing. The honey is gorgeous.
We try to preserve the combs to give back
to the bees, but some always gets broken,
so we clean and process it to make candles, lip balms, soap, and lotion.
We melt it to seal our bottles of delicious honey.
