I am a beekeeper.

I have four hives.

Unfortuanetly, I do not get tremendous yields due to my location; but it is decent.

I harvested about 50# early spring and another 160# mid autumn.

I leave a good deal inside between harvests and for over-wintering in case a summer dearth or long and cold winter.

I still have about 15# of spring 2010 and 60# of autumn 2010. The autumn is typically darker and has a more robust taste.

The best part is, the honey is never the same season to season.

My first mead will be coming soon.
