Making honey on the Scorrar Ranch!

What an exciting weekend we had as we raided our hive for the first time. The bees weren't too impressed as we took the frames dripping honey from their home. Our first step after retrieving the frames was to use the hot knife to take the outer layer of wax off the frame. We then put the frames into a large barrel and Cassie spun them around (which caused the honey to fly off and onto the wall of the drum). Then we just poured the honey out and wow, lots and lots of honey!
