The Highlands Agricultural Association will host a honey-tasting event Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the West Virginia University Extension Office meeting room in Elkins.
Local beekeepers will share tastings of many different types of varietal honeys from the region.
All honey does not taste the same. When honeybees gather nectar from different plants, they create a unique blend of flavors. Each flower, each location and each season provide new nectar sources for honeybees to create unique honey blends or single source variety honeys.
This is a good opportunity to sample a range of flavors and find your favorite. Honey and other honeybee related products will be available for purchase. Local varietal honey makes a great holiday gift.
The event is free and open to the public. The WVU Extension Service, Randolph County office, is located at 32 Randolph Ave. in Elkins.
