TBA Honey House!
The Tillamook Beekeepers Association
Honey House extraction facility
The Honey House is operational and will remain open each season as long as necessary.
Times are 8:00 to 12:00 and 1:00 to 5:00, 7 days a week. To reserve a time, contact Brad at 719-896-0000 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Select the block of time you wish to have, you may select more than one block if you need it, but be mindful of other member's needs.
The Honey House is located in the old Officer's Mess Hall
on the old WWII Naval Air Station — the home of blimp squadron
during World War II, now under the management of the Port of Tillamook Bay.
Our room is located at the back side dock (East End).
It is approximately 420 square feet in size.
Available equipment includes a Lyson W230 electric motorized extractor (capable of extracting 4 deep frames, or 20 medium or shallow frames); a Little Giant 2-Frame hand-crank extractor; an uncapping tank, uncapping tools, a small shop vacuum to capture stray bees, and an 8-feet long kitchen style counter top with large stainless steel sinks with hot and cold water for all cleanup needs. We also have a postal scale to weigh your buckets up to 400 lbs, and a smaller scale to weigh your bottles and jars. TBA will supply soaps, cloth and paper towels, swiffer wet mops, trash bags, and other necessary supplies to make your extraction efforts pleasant.
We also have food grade 5 gallon buckets that members may purchase for the nominal fee of $2.50.
The price for use is $5.00, plus .40 cents per frame extracted.
