Honey from the cathedral beehives has been harvested! Thanks to beekeepers Rob and Penny Reid, with help from Jaime, Yoshi, and Keiko, who collected honey from the hives in the cathedral kitchen at the end of July 2021.
The honey is separated from the wax using a hand-cranked machine that spins the frames at high speeds.
The Cathedral Breadbakers Guild are now using our bees' honey in their loaves prepared for communion every Sunday. "Bee prepared" for honey to be sold in the nave, coming soon!
