Who’d have thought? We entered our honey at the fair because the Medina Beekeepers Association requires you to enter if you want to sell honey at the fair booth. But, with so many very experienced beekeepers also entering (the Medina Beekeepers Association is a very large and strong group) we figured there was no chance that Bramblestone honey would bring home a ribbon. So, we were absolutely shocked to see this ribbon on our honey!
Maybe the blue ribbon is beginner’s luck (it scored 89 points out of a possible 100) - but I think that the Medina Beekeepers have been very good teachers, we’re lucky to live in a location with very good forage conditions for bees, and Randy is well on his way to being a master beekeeper!
