We ended up with and bottled 23 pounds of honey from our hive this year. I would say that is not too shabby for a first year, brand spanking new hive. I'd say that is plenty to last us for a year and some to gift at Christmas. Our honey is darker than most, an amber color with a stronger or shall we say more distinguished taste. Either way it is good, and we are excited!
This is what 23 pounds of honey looks like.
