Beekeepers and honey lovers of all stripes - celebrate the end of the year with the NYCBA!
Bring in a minimum of one pound of your finest honey to test your nectar against other New York City (and surrounding areas) beekeepers’ own caramelized sunshine. Bring samples of both spring and fall harvests for twice the chance to emerge victorious. Or just bring your distinguished palate and an appetite for voting!
Categories will include but are not limited to:
Best Tasting Spring Honey
Best Tasting Fall Honey
There will be prizes. There will be bragging rights. There will be a lot of honey to taste.
AND THERE WILL BE BEE MOVIES ALSO! RUNNING THE ENTIRE TIME.
We have secured some wonderful and rare films about - you guessed it - beekeeping!
Films from the 1930's, 1940's, and 1950's. Several short films on bees and beekeeping. Instructional, informative, whimsical, wonderful beekeeping films through the ages. Some real oddball stuff, too.
These films are remarkably high quality and are NOT readily available in the public domain. Making a short film was an expensive endeavor many years ago, before every primate with a weak pulse could make one on her/his phone. These are great and fun and funny films. All bees!
