We appreciate all that you do to support the Texas Beekeepers Association and its valuable programs. Our ability to protect the honey bees through research, community outreach, legislation, and commerce all depend on your generosity. A donation to the TBA funds listed above will help our volunteers continue their efforts to increase awareness of the magnificent honey bee.
Our Legislative Fund enables our Officers and Directors to participate in the state legislative process to ensure that the appropriate laws are in place to protect our honey bees and beekeepers.
The Texas State Fair remains one of the largest agricultural festivals in the country. The Honey Bee Exhibit receives more traffic that any other exhibit in the pavilion. For six years straight, it was selected as the “Peoples Choice” exhibit in the Food and Fiber Pavilion by the Texas Department of Agriculture. It takes a tremendous amount of money and effort on the part of John Talbert and many others to store, maintain, set-up, man, and take down this exhibit each year. Please contribute to our State Fair Honey Booth Fund.
Our Texas Honey Queen and Princess travel all over the state to educate children and local communities. Travel expenses incurred by these ladies are paid for through your donation, and fund raising activities throughout the year. Your donation through THBEA to the Texas Honey Queen Fund will enable these efforts to continue.
