Garden Thyme: Harvesting Honey - Comparing 19th Century Methods and Today's

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday September 17

10:00 AM  –  11:00 AM

Bees are one of the hardest-working animals on earth. Once established and healthy, a hive can consistently produce far more honey than needed to survive a New England winter. This is where a Bee Keeper can come in and carefully extract honey and other products to use at home or for sale. Many of the methods and tools have changed throughout the last 200 years but the basics are still very much the same. Come learn, watch, and even help in the harvest of this year’s crop of honey, comparing today’s methods to those of the 1830s.

Please make sure to arrive a few minutes before the program starts in order to check in at the Visitor Center and walk to the program location.
