On August 14 in Nikolaev at the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Theotokos on blessing of the archbishop Nikolayevsky and Voznesensky since early morning the second exhibition - honey fair opened.
According to the chief specialist of department easy and processing industry, supports of business activity of the Executive Committee of the City Soviet of People's Deputies of Olga Krasnokutskaya if last year as the initiator of such honey exhibition on Honey Saviour the Executive Committee of the City Soviet of People's Deputies acted, this year the initiative was shown by beekeepers.
And this year participants of an exhibition - fair became slightly more - to 6 beekeepers two more monasteries (Sacredly - Mikhaylovsky female and Konstantinovsky man's) who offer the honey production to citizens were added.
This year, despite severe winter (many bee families were lost), the honey crop very much even is quite good, the beekeeper Nikolay Zasukhin told. If to speak about grades, here the second year in a row in the Nikolaev honey market there was a rape honey which while causes fears in buyers (it unusual color - white), but absolutely vain - this honey is very useful and tasty. And here the buckwheat from our honey disappeared - in area it isn't sowed. Though if you see grechishny honey, it won't be obligatory it is a fake - many beekeepers travel about on the North in search of a buckwheat to receive a tasty product.
In comparison with last year the prices of honey - on the average grew by 20-30% also. "If honey good, mature, sustained, it is expensive", - Nikolay Zasukhin is sure. The most expensive grades of honey - grechishny and akatsiyevy (ask 60 UAH for 1 liter). Raznotravye will manage cheaper - 35-40 UAH/litre, and podsolnukhovy - about 30 UAH/litre. However, monasteries last year's honey - разнотравье sell today slightly cheaper than the marked sums - for 27 UAH/litre.
The exhibition will work till a dinner so many still will have an opportunity to buy a honey litrushechka for the winter.
