Date: 06/09/2024
Time: 3:00 pm-4:00 pm

What makes honey so dark or so light? How many varietals of honey are there? Why does honey crystalize? Why doesn’t honey need to be pasteurized? Learn the answers to these questions and much more during this engaging talk about the history of honey harvesting, purposeful beekeeping, and hives of past and present. Taste five varietals of honey from The Humble Bee Honey Company! 

This 90-minute program will feature a presentation and honey tasting. We suggest attendees arrive early to peruse handouts and informative materials prior to the presentation starting.
