Saturday 2nd August—Apiary meeting
Tal y Cafn at 2.30pm.
Late season inspection. Is the queen laying OK? Is there honey to harvest?
Saturday 9th August—Eglwysbach Show
Don’t worry if you haven’t exhibited honey before, just jump in and show your honey. You’ll soon be winning prizes.
See our tips on Winning Prizes and our website page Honey Shows, which includes the schedule for Eglwysbach Show. If you wish, you can bring your entries for the honey classes to the apiary meeting, and we will stage them for you. Just post your entry form to the Show secretary.
Why not try a frame of honey? The bees have made some good combs this year. Or maybe an invention.
The standard recipe for Honey Cake is shown on our recipes website page under Resources->Recipes.
Saturday 16th August—Llanrwst Show
See the honey classes schedule on our Honey Shows page. Another great day out. The Fur and Feather tent is always worth a visit.
