  1. Commercial Beekeeping
    Hello all! I've been a beekeeper in Paris, France for four years now and head beekeeper at the company for two years. We run 650 (mostly urban) beehives and space is becoming an issue in our storage / extraction room. At the moment we've got a converted two car garage with a sink in one...

    We let our hives go a while this summer and so just bottled 4 gallons of Maple/Blackberry honey. We took 20 medium frames from 3 hives. One hive was small and one we didn't touch at all so it mostly came from 2 hives. This is just a very quick video of the bottling process. Nothing new to anyone...

    Had an interesting conversation this morning, the stand out was the question: Do I have a Process & Procedure guide, in writing, for my honey harvesting and handling.

    Did a search through the forum to see if this has been addressed, but no luck, and wasn't sure which area of the forum to post this question, so here goes.

    When bottling honey after it's been creamed, what is the maximum temperature it can be warmed to without re-liquifying it? I want to bottle after it has set and want it to flow nicely. Around 82 F?

    I'm anticipating a pretty good honey flow this year - at least good for me - and need to find a good source to buy jars and bottles in bulk. I've Googled for them and found several sites that sell them, but their prices seem pretty high. I spoke with one place today who told me they were...

    Hello: I'm a second year beekeeper in WV. I had success my first summer with luck on honey flows, and no disease. So...I plan on expanding this summer. Along those lines, I am into 'stuff' sometimes, and built my own radial extractor, and entered it in a contest (that's almost over) sponsored...
