We got a new extractor yesterday since our old one had a broken handle and often felt like it was going to shake apart on us. The new one from Maxant made right here in Massachusetts is a real thing of beauty. Nicely constructed and comes in a nice big box.
So for those of you who are interested in honey, we plan to extract honey in August when we return from vacation and kids are home from camps.
And in case you were wondering, on a rainy summer day, a box is still the perfect toy.
We are sold out for the current season. If you are interested in hearing about honey for sale later this summer, please email me.
