Preparing the Bort

The newly hollowed bort is left to dry for a year or two before bees settle in. Beekeepers may cover it with a board, insulate it with dry grass, or hang protective measures like birch branches or iron nets to safeguard it from forest animals.

Harvesting the Honey

Once the bort is ready, beekeepers venture into the wilderness, often on horseback, to inspect and collect honey. Honeycomb tongues laden with forest honey are carefully harvested, leaving ample stores for the bees' winter sustenance.
