Local Beekeepers Raise a Ruckus at Utah State Fair

September 22, 2011

We did well at the Utah State Fair this year.  Despite some controversy over entries in the Centennial Gardner competition, we all kept our heads about us and worked hard to bring home some gravy.  The Library Honey (at right in photo) took second place in the Amber Honey category and the Bog Garden Honey took first place in the Amber (center) and second place in the Golden Honey (at left) competitions.  We took in a little rodeo action, surveyed the potted foods, tangled with a few carnies on the midway, and went home late at night, satisfied with the culmination of another fine growing season.
