The NRVBA owns two honey extractors and other honey harvesting equipment for use by dues-paying members.
One extractor is housed in Floyd County and will handle six medium frames or three deep frames at a time. The other extractor will handle six medium frames only, and is based in Christiansburg.
Users must reserve an extractor five days ahead of time, pick it up and return it. The equipment is signed in and out, including an inventory of condition and inventory of parts.
To reserve an extractor, send e-mail to Richard Reid with a subject line of “NRVBA: Extractor Reservation Request” or call (540) 320-0763.
