The annual Chertsey agriculture show was the weekend of 9th and 10th August, and we had never been before, but we were in for a real treat. As you will see, there is just a small amount about honey this time, but I just had to write about the show.
We entered the honey section with cut comb, light honey, chunk honey and candles. This is only the second year that they have had a honey section and I think it will get better as the years go on and more beekeepers get to know that it is there. We came away with a first and second for the candles, first for the cut comb and chunk honey, and got a first and best in show for our light honey. We will definitely be entering again next year, so put it in your diary for a great show.
If you like to see country and agriculture things, then you will not be disappointed. Horses, pigs, cattle and sheep are just some of the animals on show, and there was some real beauties. I liked the heavy shire horses and one of the farmers that we have hives with, showed two lovely examples of what shire horses should look like.
Below are some of the pictures that I took over the two days. I hope you enjoy them.
