The Haywood County Bee Club has two available options for their members to access equipment to extract honey made by their bees. Several years ago the club received a grant that funded the equipping of a honey extraction facility.  The equipment includes a "chain" uncapping machine and a 20-frame extractor.  The beekeeper only needs to provide the honey combs and a container to catch the honey. Also, a portable 9-frame extractor is available for beekeepers to borrow on an as-needed basis.  With this extractor comes a hot knife for uncapping. With either option, their are bins to catch the cappings, and honey strainers to filter out all the bee wings/legs/antennae that inevitably are in the honey otherwise.

To learn more or request the use of these items place contact call Allen Blanton at to schedule dates and time.
