How is honey produced?

The honeybee collects the nectar from deep within the flowers, churns it and adds enzymes within it's honey stomach. This is what makes it sweet. Then it is regurgitated to the worker bees in the hive. The worker bees then store it in the wax capsules and seal it over.

We harvest a percentage of the honey in Spring and Summer and only if the harvest has been good enough to allow the excess to be taken. We do this by gently removing some of the frames and extracting the honey. We always leave enough for the bees.
