Extraction Equipment

NPBA maintains a full set of hobby-grade honey extraction equipment for club member use. A security/cleaning deposit may be required. Buckets may be available for short-term use, but you should have your own storage and bottling buckets. Please plan to complete your extraction, clean the equipment, and pass it on in one to two days.

Please contact Doug Higginbotham (dhigginbo@verizon.net, (540) 347-1542) to schedule the equipment.
