Three years ago I first filmed Mum and I collecting honey from our beehives! Here's what we're harvesting from the same hives in 2017! Click to see our first honey harvesting video! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSdry0vPQdw

How to harvest honey from beehives...... 1. Get out your cell phone. 2. Call a professional honey harvester. 3. Agree on a price for his/her services. 4. Turn him/her loose and let him/her harvest the honey for you.
It was real fun to watch how you made the honey! Always wondered how it was really done. Thanks a lot for showing us. Btw - I especially liked the fact that you "only took the excess honey as the bees need it in the winter". Cool!
I'm not a bee keeper at all and I'm not actually sure how I got to this part of YouTube. but please tie your hair back using the extractor. Seen way too many incidents of people getting scalped with spinning machinery
Other than that awesome video keep it up :)
When you were pouring the honey, it reminded me of my mom and I last year doing the exact same thing... having the same timing issues lol Another great video :) @ 2:40 www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJjzIBx-cAc
So much going on there Maddie. You love your bees that's brilliant. Warm your frames in a greenhouse or car in the sun when you harvest on a cold day. The honey will flow much better and you will soon out your frames easier without wrecking them either! I run 28 hives in Germany and my kids love you on CBeebies
Hi, I like your enthusiasm :-D I would suggest you gently extracting the one side (slow rotation) and then (againt gently) the second side of the frames. It will help to reduce the weight. After that you can rotate it faster to extract the honey left there on both sides. It will help to not destroy the frames and the bees will not have the lot of work to repair it. I have had the manual extractor for two years. It was pain in the butt :-) I put some motor here (max rpm is 500) and put some regulation. Now extracting the honey is much more pleasure and fun :-) But I have 19 hives now so maybe for two hives it is not necessary.
Tim James-Hammond sometimes what you can do is leave them near the hive and the bees will clean it up for you, but that only works when you have a very strong hive. Usually you have extras to pop in while you are extracting honey thought.
Greetings from Russia! You smell not the boss of bees and very sympathy girl. I am also fond of bees, but to the girls it was interesting, I have not seen, sory for my English, translated by auto translator.
AllGoodThingsNetwork yes, much better. The honey you buy at the store usually is called clover honey which means that they only let the bees pollinate clove plants and it is virtually tasteless compared to the honey from free roaming bees
Disclaimer: My mum and I have been keeping bees for 3 years, are both well read and have completed beekeeping courses, but we are by no means experts. We are "hobbyist" beekeepers and try not to interfere with the bees too much. We welcome any advice and tips from fellow beekeepers and always recommend getting a second opinion as our knowledge is limited :-)
Hi Maddie, vedio is very much informative... Am from India. Could you please help me to get the same dress you use for bee Harvesting. I have 4 to 5 bee boxes and do not have the proper equipments to extract honey. Please help me on that.
Maddie Moate Fresh, homegrown honey is amazing, isn't it? Great job on the harvest. Do you do anything with the wax that you removed from the frames? I've seen candles made from it, but it looked pretty time-consuming. While it would make a good bee/honey-related video, I don't know if it would be worth all of the time spent. You and your mom are doing great with the bees. Thanks for sharing the videos with us. -
Never wear leather gloves and work honey bees, THEY ONLY STING EM, and can sting threw them too! WEAR THICK RUBBER GLOVES OR BARE HANDED i wear thin rubber gloves! when they bump em! wash em off in plain water and go rite back to work The thick chemical rubber gloves they can't sting threw Thin ones yes! but its rare
Yes they do use the same frames for brood and honey or pollen unless you put the honey frames in separate box on top of the brood box called honey super with a queen excluder between the boxes to prevent the queen from laying eggs in the honey super. Hope it helped!
how in the world is it possible that you have been producing Discovery Channel quality videos consistently for THREE YEARS and only have 21k subscribers? seriously, your personality is that of the ideal TV host. you really need to market this channel. more. i cant imagine any other reason why you have less than 1 million subs.
loved the video. Found it shocking how all the effort from spinning the extractor and the you pulled out the frames which had only just started dripping honey 😂 it seems that honey making is a bit of a work out 😂😂
