Honey Judges

This page is here to help promote and support Ohio’s official honey judges. This will give you access to contact judges who have been trained and willing to judge honey products with the highest standards. This page is under construction.

Why a Certified Honey Judge?

A Certified Honey Judge is a professional individual that is uniquely qualified to judge products from the hive.

This individual has had many hours of training and is proficient in using specialized equipment in evaluating all that bees produce.

The Certified Honey Judge is able to recognize & differentiate “what the bees do” versus “what the beekeepers do” with the products to render quality items. The judge is aware of the efforts and dedication it takes for the beekeeper to provide high quality goods to the consumer.

The Certified Honey Judge provides industry standards from event to event so that all items are judged in the same manner.
