Processing Run Honey

There is nothing intrinsically difficult about producing high-quality run honey in jars - honey that should bring you repeat customers - and yet one still sees an abundance of poorly presented honey in shops. All that needs to be understood and controlled are the straightforward processes of liquefying, straining, settling, and conditioning.


Ken Basterfield has been bottling and selling his honey since the 1970's and draws upon this experience to give a clear and logical description of each part of the process of producing high-quality honey for sale.

About Ken Basterfield, NDB

Ken was first introduced to bees at 6 years old, but began beekeeping upon graduating in 1971. He increased in numbers until running 150 colonies by 1979, running these as a semi-commercial outfit in parallel with his day job.


Ken took his BBKA Preliminary, Intermediate, Senior, and Senior Practical certificates, before obtaining his National Diploma in Beekeeping (NDB) in 1996. During that time, he completed a wide range of beekeeping including stock selection and breeding from the best locally-adapted performers & extensive queen raising.


Ken has tried out most of the management techniques on large scale trials leading to ‘best fit’ tools and techniques for his own beekeeping environment.
