Our services include: 

  • Extracting (Export RMP certified facility) 

  • Blending

  • Creaming

  • Packing  into Jars, Buckets and Drums — we can supply jars but if you have your own, please  let us know. 

  • Wax Processing by spinning

  • Filtering from 400um to 200um

The Process: 

  • The process starts with the super being placed in the hot room for 2 to 3 days; this allows the super to warm up to 34 degrees. 

  • Next, the frames are placed in the un-capper, where the wax is cut off and processed through the new wax press. 

  • The wax is stored and returned to the Beekeeper. 

  • From the un-capper, the frame is processed with the Picker; this loosens the honey pre-spinning. 

  • From the Spinner, the honey flows to the Wax spinner, where the remaining wax is removed. 

  • The final process is to filter the honey; the first filter is a 400um, then to our new 200 um filter. 

  • The final step is the blending to ensure the taste and colour is consistent.

We welcome the opportunity to meet with other beekepers and build our network. It is from the sharing of knowledge that we can all become better at what we do.
