No Money, Lots Of Honey

Recommended Posts

A few months back I built some bird's nests to put around the land, so far we've only had 1 family of birds move in, but 5 houses full of bees.

They've spent the last 6 months nesting (or whatever they do), and father came round today to extract the honey, here's what happened:

So as not to take up too much ThaiVisa bandwidth I have posted the rest of the pictures at:

If you made a bunch more honey you could start making your own mead. The locals would love that!

After we cleared them out I think they were a bit upset, they have only just come back again, we have put up really big boxes this time.

We got 300 baht a bottle for the last lot, not sure if I can be bothered to do process it, but thanks for the tip.

Seeing how successfull you were without even trying you might be able to make alot of honey. I've never had a source of honey so I've never tried it but from what I understand making mead is a long process (it needs 6-12 months in the bottle to age) . I hear the results are often rewarding.
