Extraction with Mike

cutting off cappings

Extraction is a method of harvesting honey. In this field day, participants will have an interactive demonstration of cold and heated uncapping as well as operation of manual and electric extractors.

After the demonstration, participants may leave or conduct their own uncapping and extraction on site.


Because this learning circle is not grant funded, a deposit will reserve your spot and will not be returned.


Our Extraction Day will be held:

Sunday, August 13, 2023

1 p.m.

Peverill’s Apiary

Sign up for a 15 minute time slot for your own uncapping and extraction upon arrival.

Spots are limited to 15 people, include “things to do with cappings” presentation, and socializing before and after your time slot.

Mike Peverill is the owner and operator of Peverill’s Apiary, based in residential Ankeny backyards. He runs a very successful farmers market booth with a diverse range of products at the Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market.
