You probably noticed from my recent social media posts that I've been a busy bee (I love puns!) preparing entries for the New Jersey Honey Show.
The results for the 2020 Honey Show are in!
I won Best in Show!
Besides the bragging rights we get when we win, the Honey Show allows us to bring awareness in Trenton to support beekeeping in the State of New Jersey.
While I am a hobbyist and my bees help our local environment, my fellow commercial beekeepers play an essential role in bringing food to our table. However, beekeeping is often an invisible component of farming. When we go apple picking in the Fall, we often forget that where there’s an apple once there were a flower and a bee.
So now you know that when you buy our soap, our lip balm, or a jar of our honey, you are helping beekeeping.
Here you can see a picture of the display at the State House in Trenton.
