On 23rd August the Bee Group spun the first batch of honey from the Standen Apiary.

This was taken from ‘Pear’ Hive which is the only one which has enough supplies for us to take from, whilst still leaving some food stores for the bees to use during the autumn/winter months.

Hopefully next year if all the bees in the hives and nuc survive the winter, we will have a lot more honey to harvest in spring and summer 2018.
