Please respond as soon as you can and expect a phone call to work out your date and time.
We are scheduling a number of harvest sessions coming up.
We may have some Saturday as well as Sunday sessions, and if there is a need, some weeknight sessions as well.
A limited number of slots are available for each session.
BEEKEEPERS: Slot assignments are made to keep the sessions balanced, so a fairly accurate reading of your readiness and number of frames is most helpful.
If your frames are not fully capped and you want to borrow a refractometer overnight to check your moisture content before we schedule you, that can usually be arranged.
BEE LOVEERS: These are real working harvest sessions: no spectators! But we welcome extra willing hands if there's room. However, please do not plan on bringing children unless we have made special arrangements well ahead.
The kitchen we usually use is located in Midtown Manhattan. Plan on spending four to five hours at least:
If you have access to a large commercial kitchen and would like to host a future harvest, please note that in your comments: We love to share the joy!
Normally, the first shift team is responsible for load-in and wash-in, and the second shift team is responsible for wash-out and load-out.
If any weeknights are planned, we'll start at 5pm and have a single shift so it may run quite late.
We ask each beekeeper to present us with 2 finished jars so we can showcase your product. We can offer help and advice on bottling, labeling and marketing if desired.
