Beekeeping + How To Produce Honeycomb with Queen and Colony


Saturday Aug 17th // 12-2p

Producing quality cut comb honey is a bit of a lost skill in beekeeping and that is why comb honey is such a rare treat. In this class we will share some of the methods we use to produce cut comb honey with our bees, including:

  • Choosing colonies for comb production

  • Setting up frames and supers for cut comb production

  • Timing your nectar flow

  • Processing and Packaging your comb honey

As a bonus each participant will get to take home a fresh cut of comb honey.

Beekeeping began as a backyard hobby for Josh and Rebekah Harris with one colony of bees in St. Petersburg, Florida. This backyard hobby soon turned into a passion and the number of bee colonies began to multiply. Not only were they keeping bees in their own backyard, but also expanding into the backyards of friends and relatives throughout the city. In 2015 they started a sideline business called Harris Honey. With so many open doors of opportunity for urban beekeeping in the Tampa Bay area, Josh and Rebekah decided to take the plunge into full time urban beekeeping. In 2018 Queen & Colony Bee Company was launched. By keeping bees in backyards and business properties right in the city, Queen & Colony is able to provide the highest quality of truly local raw honey and hive products to all of the Tampa Bay Area. Queen & Colony also specializes in live bee removal services and beekeeping education opportunities. Queen & Colony aims to be Tampa Bay’s source for all things bee related.

The class is held at The Urban Canning Kitchen and taught by Queen & Colony founder, Josh Harris. Address is 1040 4 St. N in St. Pete!
