Our Honey Extractor has arrived!

This year we decided to purchase a honey extractor. With the past 4 years doing it manually, taking so much time and not being an efficient way to extract honey from the frames it was time to take the step and add a honey extractor to our equipment.
Our extractor is only a two-frame extractor and a hand crank at that as well as a low end of the kind you can buy, it's basically the economy version, but we are just happy to get one! The picture on the right is a look down inside it. You can see the two baskets that the frames sit in, you slide the top close and it acts like a centrifuge, spinning at a fast rate of speed sending the honey down the sides to the spout below that opens up to filters that empty into a dispensing bucket that fills the jars! We are gearing up for the best honey season we have ever had. I have grown as a beekeeper and this is my pay off for never giving up on the bees!
