10 harvests from 6 hives.
3 in spring (June/July)
1 in summer (August)
6 in autumn (September – October)
A total of 36.86kg (81 lbs)
Smallest amount from one harvest 1.20kg (Hives in this area did not do well this year)
Biggest harvest 5.03kg (11 lbs)
Note: Japanese Honey bees produce smaller amounts of honey then their European counterparts. My goal is to try and keep an average of 3.5kg (7.7 lbs) per hive per year.
Goal for 2016 is 50kg (110 lbs) and for 2017 100kg (200 lbs)
