Come Meet the 2019 American Honey Princess

2019 American Honey Princess Nicole Medina lacba .JPG

Nicole Medina
The American Beekeeping Federation
2019 American Honey Princess

Nicole Medina, the 2019 American Honey Princess, will visit Los Angeles, California, September 3-8, as part of her National Honey Month Tour.  She will be a guest of the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association at the Los Angeles County Fair, speaking to fair goers about the importance of honeybees to California agriculture and how honeybees drive the quantity and quality of our food.  She will also share information about the bonuses that honeybees provide beyond honey.  Nicole’s trip is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association.

Nicole is the daughter of Joel and Nolvia Medina of Green Township, New Jersey.  She is a sophomore at Sussex County Community College studying business administration.  Nicole has been keeping bees for five years with her family and is an active volunteer in the Sussex County Beekeepers Association. 

As the 2019 American Honey Princess, Nicole serves as a national spokesperson on behalf of the American Beekeeping Federation, a trade organization representing beekeepers and honey producers throughout the United States.  The American Honey Queen and Princess speak and promote in venues nationwide, and, as such Princess Nicole will travel throughout the United States in 2019.  Prior to being selected as the American Honey Princess, Nicole served as the 2018 New Jersey Honey Queen.  In this role, she promoted the honey industry at fairs, festivals, and farmers’ markets, via media interviews, and in schools. 

The beekeeping industry touches the lives of every individual in our country.  In fact, honeybees are responsible for nearly one-third of our entire diet, in regards to the pollination services that they provide for a large majority of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes. This amounts to nearly $19 billion per year of direct value from honeybee pollination to United States agriculture.

The Bee Booth

Bee Booth at the LA County Fair.jpg

From August 30 through September 22, 2019, volunteer members of the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association and the Beekeepers Association of Southern California will be on hand at the Los Angeles County Fair Bee Booth educating thousands of school children and the general public about honeybees and the importance they play in our lives. The LA County Fair is one of the largest county fairs in the country and is the most-visited event in the Los Angeles region in September. It's an end-of-summer tradition for many.

Come help educate your community about bees! Mingle with fellow beekeepers! You'll learn more than you could ever imagine about bees by being a part of the LA County Fair Bee Booth. This is a great opportunity to share what you've learned in Beekeeping Class 101. We guarantee you won't be bored - and we could use your help at the Honey Table and with the Observation Hive.

Your presence helps to make the fair successful. Please remember that much of the funds that we raise goes to bee research. So, please come out and volunteer to help make this another successful year with your other fellow beekeepers.
