American Honey Queen Program

The American Honey Queen Program supports the promotion and education of our international beekeeping industry. There will be many Honey Queen activities throughout the entire conference including the opportunity to buy Honey Queen Raffle Tickets for a beautiful, handmade quilt (pictured below) and opportunities to support the ABF and American Honey Queen Program through the silent auction all week. We would love to see you at one or more of these.
