Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Capolago. Alberto Bianchi (dressed in white) is a beekeeper and an organic farmer (with the label Bio Suisse). He is making honey by using a honey extractor. The honeycombs are inside the centrifuge and the speed push the honey out of the honeycombs. A beekeeper (or apiarist) keeps bees in order to collect honey and other products of the hive (including beeswax, propolis, pollen, and royal jelly). 5.06.12 © 2012 Didier Ruef
