My First Harvest - What a joyful experience :) Photos/Vidz

Hey Everyone

Just wanted to share some photos & videos from this weekends harvest, my first go! All went well & now I have a big bucket 3/4 of delicious raw pure unadulterated honey to share with my friends & family.

It was a nice mild day, I started the harvest at 9AM, did 2 frames at a time, let the frames drain for 3 hours before moving onto the next 2. The bees werent very active, I think they were all staying inside where it was warm. A far cry from the day before where it got to 44 degrees C!

Yes they do shine in all their glory in the sunlight! :slight_smile:

I now have another question, to our Aussie beekeepers I guess… I have a few people asking to buy some honey from me. Sooo, I dont really know how much its worth, what would you expect to pay for raw honey of this blend ( a mix of who knows what from who knows where! ) raw honey in a 500g squeeze bottle?

I sell 550ml jars of honey for $10. I full it to 700g. People haven’t complained about that price. They usually come back for more.
