UWS students to sell UWS Apiary honey, give honey extraction demos

Students in the University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Honey Bee Biology and Scientific Beekeeping class will be performing honey extraction demonstrations and selling UWS Apiary honey and lip balm on Tuesday, Sept. 24 in the breezeway between the Oexemann Greenhouse and Barstow Hall from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The event is free and open to the community.

The students, along with professor Dr. Edward Burkett , will provide demonstrations on how the honey is extracted, filtered and bottled. So far this year, UWS honey bees have produced 350 pounds of honey.

Free honey samples will be offered and UWS Apiary Pure Wildflower Honey will be for sale for $5.00 for a 12-ounce bear bottle. Also, in an effort to encourage environmentally sustainable practices, individuals are encouraged to bring their own glass jelly jars to be filled -- $2.00 for a 4-ounce jar or $4 for a 5-ounce jar. The honey is 100 percent natural with no additives or preservatives. All proceeds from sales are used to support the UWS Apiary and initiatives of the Urban Honey Bee Project.

The UWS Apiary’s popular Doctor Bee’s Beeswax Lip Balm will also be for sale for $2.00 per stick and available in peppermint and rosemary, lemon and orange flavors. All of products are produced by UWS students and staff using all-natural products, including beeswax and honey from the UWS Apiary.

Coming soon, the beekeeping students will be making and selling beeswax soap, beeswax candles and Doctor Bee’s Beeswax Salve using beeswax from the UWS honey bees.
