KSBA to Hold a Black Jar Honey Contest at Fall Meeting


All members attending the Kentucky State Beekeepers Association (KSBA) meeting on Nov. 4 are invited to participate in a Black Jar Honey Contest. Participants are asked to bring a jar of their honey, painted black with no identifiers whatsoever. The jar can be very small – a baby jar or two-ounce jar is fine. The black-jar requirement ensures the honey will be judged without bias. The contest will be judged by Tana Peers, certified Welch Honey Judge.

As a reminder, the fall KSBA meeting will be Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017 at the Christian County Cooperative Extension office (2850 Pembroke Road, Hopkinsville, KY). Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. CT and the meeting will wrap up around 3:00 p.m. The fall meeting is free to all KSBA members. A business meeting will be held the evening before and all local associations are asked to send a representative. More information about both the fall meeting and the business meeting can be found in our recent post.
