2019 OSBA Honey Judging Classes

OSBA is offering both sessions of the Honey Judging Class this spring on March 8 & 9, 2019 at the Conference Room at Waterman Farms, 2433 Carmack Road, Columbus, Ohio.

The Friday evening class (6pm -9pm) will offer the beginning session that includes equipment, liquid honey and wax. The cost for the Friday evening class is $50.00 and will include Jim Thompson’s book on honey judging and handouts.

The Advanced Class will be held on Saturday (all-day class -9am-4pm) will be a combined class of students from Friday evening and the students from the 2018 March class held in Akron, Ohio this past spring. Cost for this all-day session is $75.00. The Saturday class will refresh equipment, liquid honey and wax then move on to the remaining five areas:

  • Common Products of the Hive
  • Non- Honey Hive Products
  • Home Kitchen Produced
  • Personal Care Products
  • Miscellaneous Products related to Beekeeping

The newly updated and revised manual will be included in the cost of $75.00 for the Saturday session. The manual has updated judging forms, judge’s forms and list of current judges in Ohio and is in a three-ring binder for ease of use.
