So when Clovermead Apiaries was having their annual Bee Beard Competition last summer (2008) I booked the family to attend.
After all, we all love honey and we came from grandparents who were involved in farming and agriculture so I knew most of us would appreciate a trip to the country.
The family had listened patiently to many of my bee facts and tidbits. They'd even read my book and given me feedback. So I felt it was their due to have a trip to Clovermead.
