Previous Honey Queens
The Texas Beekeepers Association and its members cannot begin to show their gratitude for the personal sacrifices and service that our previously crowned Honey Queens have provided to our association. Their tireless efforts, miles traveled, children educated, presentations given, and honey recipes crafted would exhaust the normal person. Please provide a donation to their Texas Honey Queen Fund if you agree.
