State Fair 2017

At the Iowa State Fair there is an Iowa Honey Producers Association a booth in which you can see different products of a hive and things beekeepers make from the hive.

Here you can see different home made honey bee themed gift baskets. In the baskets you can see books, candles, cream soaps, and many other useful items. This is one of the categories you can enter in to get a prize and a ribbon.
