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.


  1. I am absolutely GREEn with envy! And, I mis my bees. We can't wait until spring to repopulate the hive.

  2. That is awesome! You should make a cute custom label:)

  3. How Sweet!! Congrats! You should be very proud. A custom label would be neat!
