First honey extraction of the year

This year Carson & Bees was fortunate to have several hives in a gorgeous mustard field, and Carson was able to harvest 15 gallons of spring honey as a result – a very early extraction, but the supers were too heavy to resist.

The end result was well worth the effort!
