MCBA maintains some loaner equipment for new beekeepers. See each section below for details.
We have a three-frame hand-crank extractor available for loan to any member of MCBA. You will need to provide your own bucket or other container for collecting your honey. (A large stock pot will do in a pinch though a bucket with a spout at the bottom will make bottling much easier.)
Please return the extractor clean and in good condition. Please also try to return it as soon as feasible so it will be available to other members.
- Blackout dates: The club's extractor is on display during the Medina County Fair and is unavailable for loan during that week.
Buzz and Nancy Riopelle store the extractor for us. Please contact them directly to schedule a convenient time.
