Honey Harvest at 5 Ojo Inn B&B in Eureka Springs, AR

July 27th, 2010 by Richard Grinnell

We continue to enjoy our fascinating hobby of raising honey bees. This is our third year with bee hives and each season brings new lessons. This year one of our hives didn’t survive but the other hive flourished. Yesterday we were able to extract almost 2 gallons of honey from the hive while leaving enough honey for the bees to survive on for the winter. Total time from collection to extraction to clean-up……5 hours. Is this a labor of love or what!!

In early fall we will check again to see if they have gathered any fall nectar and created additional honey we can harvest. In the spring we will start two new hives.

When you are here for breakfast, ask us for some honey for your biscuits. We’ll be glad to share some. Or let us know you’re coming and tell us you’d like our Apples with Honey Poppy Seed Dressing for your fruit course.

See you at the inn…….bee there and bee happy.
