This is my first year to harvest my honey and I need help. I want it to be raw unprocessed (like what I now buy as raw honey from the farmers market)so what do I need to do this without spending a lot of money. I only have one hive. I'm looking at a setup in Brushy Mountain Bee Farm catalog for $49.95. It's in the bottling and filtering section and it's a 5-gallon bucket (2 buckets) and bottler system? What do you think of this. Would I need anything more? Do I have to have an extractor? If I use an extractor can I reuse the wax in the hive?
Any info you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
