Maj 2020 - First market day
We are proud to contribute to the opening of Kolding Green Streets, which hopefully has come to stay.
Every Saturday, Kolding Green Streets brings together local producers in the name of sustainability and flavor.
We love the concept, the other participants and the curious visitors. We will strive to participate as often as possible going forward. However, in the future we will be found in a borrowed white pavilion but in our newly invested black pavilion, still on Aksel Torv.
We think carefully about our investments. The pavilion manufacturer's certificate made the decision easy for us since our purchase contributes to forest restoration.
Maj 2020 - Before Kolding Greenstreets
In connection with the participation in the Kolding Greenstreets project, we were asked if we were fresh on getting a portrait of C&K's beekeeping for Kolding weekly. We couldn't say no to that.
April 2020 - New pneumatic honey filling machine and new production room under construction
The strongest bees have survived the winter and the season is in action.
This year we are expanding massively, no longer with the use of smoke while checking on the bees.
In addition, we continuously try to optimize the underlying processor behind the honey production.
One of these measures is the fine tuning of the newly purchased Italian Lega honey filling machine , which will ensure a more efficient and accurate production in the future.
It will be a real pleasure to see it in action. But can we keep up with its crazy speed of 450 kg. honey dispenced per hour?
In addition, here are the introductory steps to the new, improved production room, which we are just as eager to get ready for production.
All food board regulations for the production of over 4 tonnes of honey are taken into account already.
Dec 2019 - First attendance at the local Christmas fair
The Christmas cheer and joy of participating in the annual 1st Advent Christmas Fair was unforgettable and hopefully a lasting tradition.

It was also made clear to the fair that C&K's beekeeping to our great pride had been included in the history of the local area.
What an honor!
