Ratel River Farm

Ratel River is the river that runs through our farm into the sea in Cape Agulhas. "Ratel" also happens to mean honey badger in Afrikaans. So, we figured it was fate and teamed up with the little critters.

We rely on a Honey Extractor that uses centrifugal force whereby the drum holds onto the frame basket, heavily laden with freshly uncapped frames and, once spinning, flings out fine threads of golden honey. This way, the wax comb stays completely in tact so that they can be easily reused by the clever worker bees. Win-win!
