New addition to our for Hire Equipment

Arrived today from Thornes. A new addition to the Brecon and Radnor BKA for hire equipment. This is a 9 frame radial electric reversible extractor. No more frenetic winding of handles to reach optimum speed when extracting your honey. This will go nicely with our uncapping trays (both heated and cold) and our other manual extractors.

Swansea and district Honey Show

We are celebrating our Honey Show this year on the 13th November at the New Lodge in Gorseinon (SA4 4PE) from 7 pm onwards. This is a bit of fun (not the hard and fast rules of official honey shows) but everybody who enters will be putting their produce under the scrutiny of all the guests, not just one honey judge! Your members are cordially invited and very welcome to join us.

We have three categories of honey – Light, Medium and Dark/Other Honey. Under the category Dark/Other Honey, beekeepers might want to enter their Heather Honey, Creamed Honey or Set Honey. All honey in that category will be judged on its own merit.

How to enter ?
For each class you wish to enter, please bring one jar of honey of any size/shape/weight. Labels will be provided on the night. Grading glasses will be available so that, if you are not sure, you can check which class to enter. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for each category.

This year we are adding two classes – two matching, small wax blocks, up to 50 g – any mould shape – AND two matching candles, any shape. These will be assessed for cleanliness, aroma and colour of wax, as well as how ‘neatly’ the items have been moulded.

There will be a buffet from 8.30 pm onwards and a contribution of £2 (SDBKS members) and £5 (non-members) for this will be collected at the door.

If you are entering your honey, blocks or candles, please bring these by 7pm so that members can start judging at 7.30.
