Texas Honey Show

About the TBA Texas Honey Show:

The Texas Beekeepers Association has, with the help of countless volunteers, put on an impressive honey show for beekeepers throughout Texas to compete for blue ribbons and accolades.

TBA volunteers worked with the world-renowned, honey judge, Ann Harmon to build the Texas Honey Show into what it is today. We owe a great deal of gratitude to Ann for her work and promotion of our program. Read more about Ann’s work here. After Ann’s passing in 2020, the Honey Show Committee strives to keep up the standards of the show that she helped to build. Pamela Yeamans played a pivotal role in building the show with Ann and has taken the techniques and standards she’s learned from Ann to continue as a judge for the Texas Honey Show.

If you’re interested in participating in the Texas Honey Show, we’ve put together some resources to help you make the most of your entries.
