Whether you're new to beekeeping or want to tidy up your honey harvesting, making it more efficient and less messy, we'll show you how with our special Honey Harvesting At Home workshop, in response to your requests for help!
Saturday 10th August 2019.
Get an exclusive 'behind the scenes' look into our honey barn to see how we process several tonnes of honey each year, with an explanation of the function of the various pieces of equipment we use. With your new knowledge of what goes in to processing honey, we'll explain how to achieve the same thing on a budget (and even for free!) at home...
This special half day workshop will run on Saturday 10th August 2019 from 9.30am through to 1pm here on our organic farm just 4 minutes from Market Deeping and 18 minutes from Peterborough train station in Lincolnshire.
It'll be a relaxed, fun and informative day covering:
Efficient and safe methods for harvesting your honey, from hive to jar, with plenty of top tips to get the best crop!
The legal side of processing and selling honey to keep you and your customers safe (and out of the Tower of London).
The various methods of processing and storing honey.
How to use a fractometer and why it's essential.
The pros and cons of the many different types of equipment available, from heated uncapping knives to comb cutters and how to extract honey entirely for free at home with no specialist equipment!
Plenty of opportunities to ask questions
A special honey tasting session (different to our experience day tasting) to demonstrate how the different processing methods can change the flavour and texture of honey
