Blue Ribbon at The Fair
The Hampshire Beekeepers display at the Hampshire County Fair took the blue ribbon. I think I counted 9 other farm/business displays that HCBA was in competition with for the blue ribbon. The observation hive was a tremendous success. That's the reason for the blue ribbon in my opinion. It created a dynamic display instead of just a static display. We went to the fairgrounds at about 4 Pm on Saturday to pick up the display. Even as I was carrying the observation hive to the truck people were flagging me down to talk about it. It was a great experience and I think it provided a lot of exposure for HCBA.
