BEEKEEPER’S HONEY HARVEST / EXTRACTION PARTY
In accordance with guidelines from local, state, and federal agencies, HCBA will not be conducting a Honey Harvest event this year.
Generally in AUGUST at:
MAD RIVER BREWING CO – 101 Taylor Way, Blue Lake
(Take the Hatchery Rd Exit)
Beekeepers are invited to extract their honey supers!
Please contact Justin to sign up for a time at the extractors, especially if you have more than 2-3 honey supers to extract
Walk-ins are welcome on a first come, first served basis – But you may be placed on a wait list
- Do make sure your honey frames/supers are in bee tight containers
- Please bring food-grade buckets & drip trays (suggest one 5-gallon bucket per 10-frame super)
- Due to time and space limitation – buckets or bulk containers reuired – filter honey into jars at home
- Please bring your own uncapping scratchers & knives – limited equipment will be available at the event.
The beekeepers are grateful to the brewery staff at Mad River for their generous support and for providing a great place to extract honey!
