Admiring nature's handiwork, Dave Stomberg basks in the glow of a frame full of honey. Beekeepers shave off the comb's wax seal before they extract the honey and pour it into barrels for shipment to wholesalers, who filter and market it.

"Admiring nature's handiwork, Dave Stomberg basks in the glow of a frame full of honey. Beekeepers shave off the comb's wax seal before they extract the honey and pour it into barrels for shipment to wholesalers, who filter and market it.
