This year’s honey show was very well attended and most categories were represented with an entry. The show was judged by Hugh Donohoe who has been a member of ADBKA for many years, a former committee member and, more recently, has been appointed an SBA examiner.
What stood out this year was that the honey from our own training apiary at Crathes came first in two categories and also won second place in another. This success is no doubt down to the efforts of Naomi Adams, manager of Crathes Apiary and her willing assistants. The bees at Crathes are kept primarily for training purposes and as such receive regular disruptions throughout the honey producing season, which is not conducive to honey production.
Thanks go to Rosie Crighton and Barbara Cruden for their support and to the many association members who helped to make this event a success.
