Nothing too fancy, but the winners were happy (you know because they won).
In my mind the yellow ribbon in a honey contest should go to first place.
Where can I buy the winner’s honey?
always looking for a good new varietal…
Well, they’re backyard beekeepers who don’t sell. I like to think of them as honey hoarders. How dare they not share with me! I lasered an award for them and everything.
Bee fact: A single honey bee produces about 7 drops of honey (drops to a human) in its lifetime. I wonder how many bees it takes to make a pint of honey.
Correction: I regularly beekeep with the guy on the end. He gives me honey, so he’s my favorite person in the picture.
Nice detail on the medals!
I see what you did there
I used to keep Buckfast bees (a hybrid originating in the Buckfast Abbey in England). Rule of thumb was there were 60,000 of them in a hive (I had 2 hives) before winter set in and I stole their honey I can’t imagine hoarding it - we could never go through even a year’s production from those hives. We’d give it away to everyone we knew well enough to give a present to
Right now, my bees are quarantined in the country to be re-queened. They got a little too feisty for the area and needed to be calmed.
We had a pool and the bees would always be grabbing a drink. My kids didn’t even notice. Friends would come over and get spooked. But I picked the Buckfast because they’re very non-aggressive so there wasn’t any real problem. It did provide a good opportunity to teach them about bees & show them the hives and counteract all the freaking out people do when encountering bees.
We just checked with parents to make sure no one was allergic & as an EMT I had EpiPens just in case. Never had a kid get stung though.
How nice - I’ll bet they were thrilled with the win AND the unique cool medal!
Wow, these are…sweet
Perfect awards for beekeeping aficionados!
SO much better than the standard award ribbons! No wonder they look so happy.
People will be buzzing about the awards for a long time.
Amazing! do you mind telling us how you did it?
did you cut but not all the way? I would really like to do that!
It’s just simple engraving. You may want to start with the matrix here.
@caribis2 is correct. I simply created an image and used Proofgrade and GF settings.
Those look great. I like how the honeycomb pattern came out!
