Bee Natural Body Care

Beekeeper Wayne Vitale began keeping honeybees at Spy Coast Bee Farm with one mission in mind, “To Bring More Honey Bees Back into the World.”
Spy Coast Bee Farm is located in New York, USA on Setauket Harbor's "Spy Coast" . Over the years we grew to eventually create Setauket Gold, an all-natural raw honey harvested from our honey bees while living in harmony with nature.
This is when “Bee Natural Body Care” was born. The rich natural ingredients from the bee hives was included in formulating the richest creams and body lotions.
Today “Bee Natural Body Care” makes products for mind, body & soul.

Brand New MAXANT 20-Frame Extractor

I have a brand new MAXANT 20 frame extractor (with legs) that I am putting up for sale…just got it earlier this month…I have used it once and it’s too small for what I need. I am asking the list price of $1,495…but I am absorbing the cost of shipping & handling as well as taxes…plus it comes with a base (48”x39.5”) the top of which is made of 5/8th in finished plywood (that has been painted white) and the bottom is a pallet for ease of moving. The extractor can be unbolted from the base if desired and the legs can also be removed.
I can be reached via email:
