OSBA Announces Two Honey Judging Classes for 2019

OSBA is offering both sessions of the Honey Judging Class this spring on March 8 & 9, 2019 at the Conference Room at Waterman Farms , 2433 Carmack Road,  Columbus, Ohio.  The Friday evening class (6pm -9pm) will offer the beginning session that includes equipment, liquid honey and wax.  The cost for the Friday evening class is $50.00 and will include Jim Thompson’s book on honey judging and handouts.

The Advanced Class will be held on Saturday (all-day class -9am-4pm) will be a combined class of students from Friday evening and the students from the 2018 March class held in Akron, Ohio this past spring.  Cost for this all-day session is $75.00.  The Saturday class will refresh equipment, liquid honey and wax then move on to the remaining five areas:

  1.  Common Products of the Hive
  2.  Non- Honey Hive Products
  3.  Home Kitchen Produced
  4.  Personal Care Products
  5.  Miscellaneous Products related to Beekeeping

The newly updated and revised manual will be included in the cost of $75.00 for the Saturday session.  The manual has updated judging forms, judge’s forms and list of current judges in Ohio and is in a three-ring binder for ease of use.
