Mary Duane: Honey Judging

September 28, 2021

Honey Judging

Massachusetts Beekeeper Association President Mary Duane will present on the process of Honey Show judging. She has entered honey shows for over 20 years and has been judging honey in her state for over 10 years.  The presentation will cover what the judges are looking for when evaluating honey, how honey is evaluated, and tips on preparing honey products for competition. Winning a ribbon at a Honey show can add value to your honey and increase sales.
