honey extracting

Here's my honey man at work extracting honey. Our honey house is festive with Christmas lights even in August which is when I took this picture. The frames are uncapped with a special sharp uncapping knife and then put into our 20 frame extractor you can see in the background. The extractor stopped working this summer and I had to get our neighbor Andrea in to look at it. She took the gear box off and I talked on the phone to a lovely woman at the Dadant parts plant in Georgia who told me what the problem was and what part I needed. I felt so cool when the part arrived and Andrea put it back together and it worked! Yay team!
