Honey Harvesting on The Lazy Homesteader

Fall is the time to harvest many things, but my personal favorite is honey. Fragrant, sticky, golden honey. Nothing is better than honey on fresh bread, to sweeten hot tea, or drizzled over fruit.

If you have an interest in producing your own honey, and are looking for the inside scoop on this infamous task, you’ll definitely want to read all about how I pulled 35 lbs. of honey from my Langstroth hive.  Anisa, Lazy Homesteader extraordinaire was kind enough to let me post this story as a guest blog on her site, in sequence with her post on harvesting honey from her top bar hive.  Two great posts on the honey harvesting using different approaches – check them out and see which method will work best for you.

You can find all of this information and more at The Lazy Homesteader.

    Great article. I’m looking into having a Warre hive this spring if I can pull it off.

      If I had it do all over again, I would have a Warre. I love how the hive bodies are smaller but it is still a vertical hive for our cold climate. And being able to choose top bar or frames is also cool.
