CMBA has dozens of hardworking volunteers who work the honey booth during the Maryland State Fair.  Our mission is not just to sell honey, it is also to educate the public about honey bees and their importance in agriculture and, more broadly, in the biosphere.  Here, you can just a few who gave of their time along with winners from various bee-related product categories.

And now, a little history…  At the end of 2014, the post of Maryland State Apiarist was handed off from Jerry Fischer to Cybil Preston.  Here is a great picture of them together. (Thanks to Bob Stanhope for the photo.)
