Carly Vannoy and her mother joined us in the studio this morning just after the 6:30 news. Carly is the 2017 Honey Queen. Carly has been involved with her own bee hives since she was a little girl. She is traveling the state of Iowa sharing presentations about honey bees, honey and beekeeping and the importance of bees for pollination. Carly says the best way to get started with your own bee hives is to go to www.IowaHoneyProducers.org and attend classes they sponsor. You can get more information on Carly on her facebook page....
