How honey is produced

From the flower to the jar - Filtering the extracted honey

The empty frames are pulled out from the extractor, returned to the original super and are placed back onto the hive to be refilled.

The honey is filtered using a 3 stage system, filtering out particles larger than 0.3mm. It is passed to a settling tank where it remains for a day allowing captured air bubbles to rise to the surface. The honey is then decanted and stored in 20 litre pails until the honey is required for packing into customers jars.

The empty frames are unloaded from the extractor.

Honey from the extractor is filtered with a coarse stainless filter to remove unwanted debris.
