Honey Show 2016

Our Honey Show on Saturday 24th September 2016  will be kindly be hosted by Daylesford with Michael Hunt as  honey judge. 

We are mounting various stands and stalls around the traditional show to display several aspects of the beekeeping craft. These will include skep making and candle making as well as information stands and a stand where you can buy our honey. Daylesford will also have several farming and produce stands and demonstrations of their own 

The show will operate in the usual way and the exhibits will be mounted on Friday evening. This will enable the judging to be done early on Saturday morning, and the show opened to the general public at 10am. We are very pleased to have Michael Hunt judging again this year. The usual classes are represented here in the schedule, including the "Black Jar" class judged solely on the flavour of the honey with no account being taken of visual presentation. This will be open to beekeepers that have never been awarded a place for their honey in an NCBKA show. This is to encourage our new beekeepers to have a go without having to worry too much about careful filtering and warming. It also recognizes the value of completely natural honey straight from the comb. The winner of this class will be awarded the Mike Rose Trophy. As usual, there will be an "Open Section" in which any beekeeper can enter; and the NCBKA section, which is for members only. We do hope that we can encourage as many beekeepers as possible to enter. There will be a charge of 25p per class for NCBKA members. For non-members the fee will be 50p per entry.  To download a copy of the schedule from here
