    Great pictures, thanks for sharing, in the shot of the Apiarist Gear there is an extractor just like the one I use. Must be a functional antique like it's owner .

    It was a great place to visit. We are heading there again in a couple of weeks to grab some bulk honey and to check out their 1500 hives. The spring flowers are coming up so the country is looking beautiful right now.

    P.S. If anyone is in the area, Email me and we can hook up.
