Hi ya'll! Sorry that I haven't been very active here lately but I've been traveling and working so much I haven't had a great deal of time. I thought you might enjoy a glimpse of Bruce Hanson's (REDBEE) honey house. This is all just raw footage so forgive me if it's a little crude.

I'll make sure to video the extraction process when we start pulling the honey. The storage room is now empty of supers with all 10,000 or so stacked on hives and about full!!!

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

Holy freakin cow! 10,000 deep supers? I knew Redbee had a few thousand hives but I guess I never did the math on the amount of supers required.

I spoke with Peggy today & she said Scott went home for a short stint then was right back with Redbee. Must be those peanut butter pies?

Yeah, come on Scott, Peggy said you have the camera with you. Poor thing is doing all your removals and trap outs and can't show proof. No proof, no credit! I believe her though, mostly.  grin

Nice video Scott, but what I want to know was Redbee born into this business or did he build it up slowly over time.

Redbee knows his stuff. He started out with just a few packages 2 years ago and split them to 3500!  Smiley
