Once the hive boxes are full of honey, which we can see by looking at each frame in the box. If there is a wax seal on the frame that means it is full and ready to me harvested. The beekeeper then carefully removes the bees and transports the hive boxes to the extraction facility. At the extraction facility the frames are then removed from the hive boxes and placed into an uncapping machine which is designed to gently cut and remove the wax seals the bees create to protect and keep in the honey once the cells are filled. The frames are then taken and placed in another machine that is similar to a centrifuge in order to extract the honey by spinning it at a high speed, forcing the honey out of the cells without damaging the honeycomb itself. The frame with the intact honeycomb is then put back into the hive box to be used again so that the bees do not have to make new cells to store the honey in. The honey is then pumped into a storage tank where it is minimally strained by running it through a set of mesh screens to remove any foreign matter, such as bee parts and dirt. The screens used in this process allows the pollen, mineral, vitamins, and enzymes to remain.

HIGH MOUNTAIN HONEY
David's Raw Organic Mountain Honey has a lovely, mild caramel foretaste, which opens into a tropical floral aroma and finishes by settling into a slight burnt sugar bitterness. Finishes with an aftertaste reminiscent of black tea tannin. This particular mountain honey has a small amount of organic propolis mixed in, which gives it an extra antibacterial kick. The flavour of this mixture is reminiscent of the sour notes present in black bread and very dark beers. It also reminds us of the strong, fruity flavours of fruit liqueurs. Colour: This mountain honey is a beautiful dark amber colour, which shows a deep orange in the light. These honeys are all produced at altitudes of over m above sea level.
Mountain honey comes directly from the heart of the Carpathian Mountains, where producing raw honey is a millennial traditional, way of life. People put their hearts and souls into honey making, beekeepers talk to their bees and Carpathian flora establishes a great natural context for honey producers. When it comes to crystallization, honey crystals can be finer depending on the type of honey glucose content.
Honey known as high mountain honey is honey produced by bees from the high mountain flowers, over m, from lands with all wild flowers. This is a very aromatic, intense and persistent. High mountain honey is a honey has a thick texture and has a dark amber color.
