IHPA Honey Booth at the 2013 Iowa State Fair

All the booth shifts have been filled! Thank you to all the volunteers who are working at the IHPA Honey Booth this year. It is your hard work and effort that makes the IHPA Honey Booth a success. This is our opportunity to reach thousands of visitors with the great taste of Iowa Honey, beeswax products, and of course the famous Honey Lemonade. And it is all possible because of you. Thank you again for helping at the IHPA Honey Booth.
