HCBA 2017 Honey Harvest Extraction Party at Mad River Brewing Company in Blue Lake, CA 

Sunday, September 10, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Contact: Justin (760) 505-9021

Watch for the “Honey Harvest/Beekeepers”signs off Hatchery Rd to get to back entrance and the brewing facility building to unload- park in that employee lot- (The brewing building is behind/adjacent to the Brewery & Restaurant entrance at 101 Blue Lake Blvd.)

There will be a number of extractors and uncapping stations available- first come, first serve…

If you have more than 2-3 supers (20-30 frames), it is recommended that you call ahead to reserve a time for extracting (760-505-9021).

  • Bring your own food grade plastic buckets, honey frames, uncapping tools… (Glass jars are discouraged…)
  • Cover your honey supers or enclose the frames to minimize attracting local bees …

There will be folks there to assist beekeepers with the extraction. All are welcome to join the process. Volunteers to assist with uncapping and extracting are encouraged!
