Honey Extraction!

On Sunday, September 10th we hosted a group of amazing volunteers who helped us harvest and extract our honey- We were able to successfully extract 175 lbs of honey!

A special thanks to everyone who helped out, and also to Founding Farmers for providing us with a delicious lunch!

The centrifuge sometimes has a mind of its own and needs four volunteers to hold it down!
