It is going to be a sweet day at the fair on Saturday!

In the Food Preservation Booth we have two very special guest speakers.  At 1:30 PM Dr. Burke Gossom will talk about Backyard Bee Keeping.  All sorts of fruit and vegetables are pollinated by honey bees, such as broccoli and squash, apples and almonds. Pollination is not just important for the food we eat directly, it’s vital for the foraging crops, such as field beans and clover, used to feed the livestock we depend on for meat.  Come and find out how a bee hive can be maintained in your own back yard!

At 4:30 PM Theresa Dennis will share recipes and tips on “Putting Up With Honey”  You can learn how to make jams and jellies with honey rather than cane sugar.  She will also provide a tasting of her own honey based jam at the end of the presentation.

Besides that you can stop by for Jam and Jelly tasting at 11AM at 3PM and vote for the People’s Choice award!!
