This year we have enough honey to start selling jars outside of family and friends!
We will be at the St.Madoc’s APPLE DAY on Sunday 13th October from 2pm to 5pm. The St.Madoc’s Centre is in Llanmadoc, Gower. See http://www.stmadoc.co.uk/
The cooperative is now well on its way to complete its own honey room for the professional extraction and bottling of honey. Members can use the heated decapping tray to prepare the frames for insertion in the extraction machine. Any cappings will flow down the heated panel and after being filtered can be collected.
The extraction machine has proven its effectiveness- though if the frames are not in balance, it has an unnerving habit of wandering across the room. Stef had to put his full weight on it to stabilize it. Finally the honey ripener is a real boon as the honey can be left to settle and then using the tap at the base pour the honey direct into jars.
All the equipment is food quality stainless steel and very easy to clean.
