Event Details

CBA is excited to invite local backyard beekeepers to a FREE Extraction Day event at the Carriage House in Edgerton Park in Hamden. You bring clean supers of capped honey, and we'll provide extractors, hot knives, and capping tanks. It's a unique opportunity to learn about the honey extraction process hands-on from experienced beekeepers. 

What you bring:

  • Full clean supers of capped honey without any brood or bees - maximum two per person
  • "Clean" means not dripping honey
  • A clean bucket and secure lid to collect your extracted honey
  • A clean bucket to collect your wax caps (if you want to keep them)
  • Large garbage bags for the wet extracted supers

What we provide:

  • Extractors
  • Hot knives to remove the wax caps
  • Capping tanks

Other considerations:

Food - If you'd like to stay for the entire event, please bring your own lunch. CBA will provide snacks and cold beverages, and you're welcome to bring a non-perishable snack to share.

Parking - Not allowed within Edgerton Park. On-street parking is available outside the park entrance.
