Honey extraction is the central process in beekeeping of removing honey from honeycomb so that it is isolated in a pure liquid form. Honey is stored by honey bees in their beeswax honeycomb. Jack and Ericka Lamar will discuss different methods before demonstrating how they use the extraction machine.
