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 TBA Honey Show Committee created the Ann Harmon Award to highlight the excellence in presentation we learned from Ann’s guidance. The TBA Honey Show Committee has continued to build the show using the techniques and standards learned from Ann while also aligning with the rules and standards of the American Honey Show.
