Some rains have finally come to cool the temperatures a bit. It is impressive to see the quick changes in nature due to these rains.

Honey harvesting

It is the period for honey harvesting. In the past 2 years, we have been able to distribute 650 hives among women and men in our villages. We buy the harvested raw honey (wax and honey) from the beekeepers. We condition and bottle it, and sell it on the local market.

Honey is brought to us in plastic containers in which we weigh it
