We extract our Upcountry Maui honey, which the bees have collected over the summer months, in November. In late April & early May, we extract the honey the bees collected from November to May. Winter Honey from Maui is some of the most special honey on the planet. Raw, organic and collected by the bees under the winter constellations. May 2011 was the last time we used heated knives for uncapping. We now un-cap the sealed honey combs with an un-capper that uses no heat. This system of uncapping removes the was capping and allows the honey to be cold spun out of the frame, see photos below.
