*PLEASE NOTE: Removal of the auto harvesting frames is for demonstration purposes only.

The above time laps footage captures four stages of auto cell preparedness and honey storage by the bees. Operational auto frames remain permanently in place, and are kinder to bees and their keepers. This modern approach eliminates the messy aspect of traditional  harvesting. Undisturbed, the bees are left to their own devises, producing pristine honey directly into your jars. This process will show an immediate return on your investment, as there is no need for a honey room, spinning and heating equipment, or professional extraction fees.

A retro phrase coined in the the 1920's describing 'an outstandingly good thing'. It's a catchy homophone, sounding like  ~ ' The Business'

 Amusingly, Bee's  do appear to have 'knees' ~ As modeled by my gorgeous poster girl. Whilst foraging she packs her 'pollen baskets'  full, on the fine hairs (corbicula) of her middle legs. Adeptly bearing the load back to her hive.

The plight of our Bee's is a concerning world wide reality, there is a real need to nurture our precious gems of Nature.

It is our Universal responsibility to become their custodians.
