Equipment to Borrow

SABA has a number of items that active members can borrow.  A deposit may be required for certain equipment in case items are damaged or not returned.

Hand-Operated Honey Extractors and Accessories -- Includes everything needed to uncap, extract, and filter honey. The club has three set-ups available in different locations:  Altamont, Nassau, and Galway.  You will need a large space in your car to transport the equipment.  Please return equipment promptly, typically within one week, since other members may be waiting to borrow it during honey harvesting season.
