Bee keepers in Wales

Today Dani, our host,  showed us how to get honey and how to make movable honey frames.

She was busy making them and she told us alot about honey and bees today.
They have about 6 hives. The bees eat the nectar from the flowers around the fields.

They look like this when they are full.  

These boxes are home made.

A man called Mr Langstroth invented movable bee frames in 1789.
Before then, bees got killed when the be keepers wanted honey.
From then No bees where harmed while collecting honey. I think thats a good thing
