June 19, 2012 (San Diego)—“Our honey reputation continues to make history,” Deerhorn Valley Antler editor Kim Hamilton announced today.
This year, beekeeper Dave Yarbrough from Upper Deerhorn Valley entered his honey in a blind tasting sponsored by the San Diego County Beekeeping Association at the San Diego County Fair. It tied for first place, and was ultimately awarded second place on a tie breaker.
“So... for the third consecutive year Deerhorn Valley honey has grabbed a top award,” said Hamilton, also a homemade honey-maker. “The honey flow is really just beginning this year, so beekeepers are all hoping for a more productive year than 2011... which produced a first-place entry but was exceedingly scarce.”
