Sunny Hill Honey is processed in the extracting room (left) at the Marengo plant.  The process has remained the same since 1963 although most of the machines have been updated. 

The full frames (honey combs) are put through the uncapper (right) to remove the wax cappings from the comb's cells.
Frames are then placed in the extractor (left) where centrifugal force removes the honey from the combs.  The honey flows through a series of baffles (right). This seperates and removes the excess wax from the honey.  The honey is then pumped into a holding tank and warmed to about 110 degrees.  It is then pumped through a simple nylon cloth and into the filling tanks.  We do not overheat, pressure filter, or add anything to "Sunny Hill Honey".  It is 100% natural using the same process since 1948.
