172nd Annual Fair

Dear LCBA members: 
We are encouraging all members, even the new beekeepers to enter their honey in the honey judging at the Lorain County Fair this year. Everyone should be able to pull 3 lbs of honey from their hive and see how their hive is producing!  Please remember the deadline for entering product at the fair is August 5 and this is done directly through the Lorain County Fair, please see their website for an entry form and rules for entering if you are interested. If you are able to get enough honey, even 20 bottles, you are welcome to sell at the fair.  Please review the labeling requirements that are in the Beekeeping for Dummies book and please ask any executive member if you have any questions!  If you are interested in selling at the fair, you will need to review the above forms and deadlines for entries! Everyone is encouraged to participate, as Denzil would say, "and earn back some of your expenses!"

Now for the fair, the executive board has reviewed the rules for selling honey this year, see link below for the new rules for everyone to review.  The rules that have changed are highlighted in red so they are easier to find.  There is also an intent to sell honey form which must be completed by August 5 and in the hands of Bill Vittori. The cost of 1 lb. on honey will remain at $10 per pound, along with LCBA retaining 20% of your honey sales.  All product being sold must have a price tag on it and if you want your honey priced higher, please reflect that on the price tag.

We are basing the volunteer sign-up sheet on the number of sellers from last year, so all persons interested in selling honey will need to sign up for 12 hours.  Once we have the number of sellers verified, the number may be adjusted to more or less hours needed to run the booth.
 
For the honey booth sign-up sheet , see link below for hours.  Honey booth sales sign up is first come, first serve, so please have your primary and alternate times in mind when you sign up.

There’s gold in your backyard

It’s the pollen that honeybees collect and distribute among trees, flowers and vegetable plants to help them grow. We rely on honeybees to pollinate one-third of our food supply. These small, but mighty creatures are vital to our existence!

Be part of the worldwide movement to help the honeybee.
