From the older hive which was set up last year, he's already pulled 7 frames which we put up as half pure honey and half honey with comb and got 12 pints. That was back in mid-April. The fall honey flow hasn't started here yet but will soon and it depends on the weather how much they will make.
The second hive is a new hive set up this spring. It could make extra but I only expect it to make enough for over wintering.

My first hive is an 8 frame hive and the second one is a 10 frame hive.

60 pounds is usual for extra honey but if the condtions are right and there's enough nectar they can make 100 pounds of honey per season.
