Step One

Step One

Once the hive boxes are full of honey, which we can see by looking at each frame in the box. If there is a wax seal on the frame that means it is full and ready to me harvested. The beekeeper then carefully removes the bees and transports the hive boxes to the extraction facility.

At the extraction facility the frames are then removed from the hive boxes and placed into an uncapping machine which is designed to gently cut and remove the wax seals the bees create to protect and keep in the honey once the cells are filled.

The frames are then taken and placed in another machine that is similar to a centrifuge in order to extract the honey by spinning it at a high speed, forcing the honey out of the cells without damaging the honeycomb itself. The frame with the intact honeycomb is then put back into the hive box to be used again so that the bees do not have to make new cells to store the honey in.

The honey is then pumped into a storage tank where it is minimally strained by running it through a set of mesh screens to remove any foreign matter, such as bee parts and dirt. The screens used in this process allows the pollen, mineral, vitamins, and enzymes to remain. These healthy features within the honey remaining intact is the reason our honey is considered to be unfiltered because overly filtering the honey will removed these properties from the honey. Therefore, our honey stays in the rawest form we can provide, for the best health benefits.

Honey is then packaged into large drums, sealed and coded, before it is moved off to our packaging facility. At out packaging facility each drum is tested for quality before it is gently warmed to remove any crystallization that has taken place since its arrival. During the heating process we never overheat the honey so as not to cause pasteurization during the process.
