This is a “Blue Ribbon” honey show. The Blue Ribbon is designed as the premier award at honey shows round the country and can only be awarded by a qualified National Honey Show Judge.
For many beekeepers the highpoint of the season is exhibiting at the various honey shows that take place around the UK and the Gower Show is no exception. Honey shows consists of a range of different categories, or classes, with something to challenge all levels of beekeeping skill.
