     We are honored to host the 2019 American Honey Queen, Hannah Sjostrom.  She will discuss what this position entails, including educating the public about honeybees.  Additionally, she will judge an NVBA "black jar" honey competition.  Bring a small jar of your own honey.  It may be painted, wrapped in black tape, or made opaque by other means. Members will also be available to test the moisture content of your honey - please bring a representative jar.
