Third generation beekeeper, Tess Conrad, looks for the queen bee, honey, and baby bees in an open hive demonstration at the 13th annual Lithopolis Honeyfest on Sept. 7. Conrad was joined by Hannah Sjostrom, the 2019 American Honey Queen, who visited the Honeyfest to kick off her National Honey Month tour. Sjostrom spoke about the importance of how honeybees affect our daily lives while Conrad opened the hive and showed the honeybees from the hive to the watching crowds.
