For most beekeepers, the easiest type of comb honey to produce is called “cut comb” honey. This type of honey requires no special equipment or advanced bee-handling practices. Cut comb can be produced by almost any type of hive, and there are multiple ways of packaging the honey for retail, consumption, or whatever your end use may be.
Cut comb honey is produced by cutting the honeycomb free from the frame or top bar it’s attached to within the beehive and then dividing it into smaller pieces. Usually square or rectangle, these pieces can then be packaged for sale or for gifts in a variety of containers.
Dadant offers cut comb honey equipment that allows you to scrape the honeycomb away from the frame, and cutters to ensure that each piece of cut comb is even and precise.
