This blog is for beekeepers in Northern climates. I will be describing what I am doing with my bees on a monthly schedule.
Copying any text or photos is forbidden except with written authorization of the author.
This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk.
Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Master Beekeeper Bob Sitko
Extracting and Filtering honey
Uncapping frame of honey with hot knife
The extracting workshop went well. Master Beekeeper Bob Sitko explained methods of pulling honey. He also talked about mite and nosema treatments. Wintering the hive was demonstrated also. I demonstrated how to uncap, extract, filter and bottle honey. Everyone bottled a jar to take home. Wendy served up some honey crinkle cookies, honey popcorn and honey limeade.
I have kept bees for 28 years and run 25 colonies. We have changed our business name to Bees and Honey LLC. We are still selling honey at our Stillwater location.
Honey fills (still in Stillwater) anytime but please call
