Introducing our Brown Bag Honey Tasting Contest!
If you have a delectable honey that you believe deserves recognition, why not enter it into the Bee Fun Day competition? Participating in our Brown Bag Honey contest can be a fantastic opportunity to showcase your beekeeping skills and the unique flavors of your honey.
Using a 1 lb queenline jar, select up to 5 jars of your most flavorful natural honey, this can be dark, amber or light honey and fill the jar(s). No artificially flavored honeys please.
Bring your honey to the Bee Fun Day wrapped in a brown paper bag, a small lunch bag is a good size for the queenline jars. Write your name (location of the source apiary is optional), on the outside of the bag.
Complete the entry form during the morning registration at the Bee Fun Day event on September 10th. Honey will be judged during the lunch hour and winners announced during the Q&A Session at 4PM. Prizes will be awarded to the top three honey entries.
2023 Bee Fun Day Schedule
We will be having a silent auction during Fun Day to raise additional funds for the scholarship program. If you have anything you would be willing to part with for the silent auction, simply bring it with you and one of the board members or volunteers will assist you.
Examples of past items include: Just about anything bee-related (beeswax candles, quilts, blankets, mead, flower seeds, bee cookie jars, etc.)
