Laura arrived from Airdrie and we our we went out to our site.  I swear the excitement was palpable!

Admittedly, Laura and I are so much more excited than John, but we are one big happy bee loving family and are so grateful for the love and support our husbands give us.  Oh and their muscles too!

One happy Laura!

This is our extractor.  I have to say, it’s huge for a boutique operation such as ours but it’s definitely the best way to go.  This extractor has harvested many years of honey and we are lucky to have it in our stock.

Unfortunately, due to the fires in the Kootenay’s last year, the previous owner had his entire apiary wiped out by wasps.  As the new owners, we were lucky to have the opportunity to test our extractor with some of the comb.
