(Harrisburg) -- Honey-related products are getting a lot of attention at the Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg this week.
Beekeepers say honey, honey comb and beeswax are used in a variety of foods and other products.
They say they've seen an increase in amateur interest in keeping bees in backyard bee houses -- known as apiaries.
Apiary Products Chairman Lee Miller says judging honey is also a Farm Show tradition.
"If there's a piece of dust, dirt, pollen, if there's a microscopic piece of lint, if there's a microcopic crystal, you can now see it," Miller explains.
Miller says those impurities can be found with special instruments that test honey clarity.
He says experts also judge different honey-related treats during the eight-day agricultural expo.
The event runs through Saturday.
