Honey Queen

I am Lucy Winn, the 2022 American Honey Queen. I am from Pennsylvania, and I am a sophomore at the DeSales University where I am studying business management and marketing. My family keeps backyard beehives, which sparked my passion for beekeeping. At school, I tutor local students in math, and in my free time, I like to read, throw pottery, walk my dog and keep bees.

As the American Honey Queen, I am a spokesperson for the American Beekeeping Federation, the national organization for beekeepers. I travel across the United States promoting beekeeping, educating the public, and representing the over 200,000 beekeepers in the United States. I am working very hard this year to promote honey, and we would love to be able to come talk at your school or other special events! I'd love to answer any questions you have about honeybees or beekeeping. Simply submit your question under the Questions tab of the blog or email me at buzzingacrossamerica@gmail.com.
