Burton expected the crowd to get even larger as the day went on.
Jim Zink, a beekeeper at Eden Mill, entertained and informed people with his beeswax demonstration and honey extraction.
He made dip candles, how candles were made without molds, and showed how people get honey from the comb to the jar.
"You cut the wax caps off, which kind of seals it in," he explained, showing off the large barrel where two large honeycombs sat upright.
Zink explained that everything was done by hand by using centrifugal force and spinning the honey free form the waxy comb, dripping done the barrel, out a spout at the bottom and through two strainers into a bucket.
"Honey is the only food that will not spoil," he said, citing how Egyptian pharaohs were buried with honey thousands of years ago and it's still good today.
Eden Mill is the home of two beehives and Zink helps take care of them with another volunteer.
"It's a wonderful place," he said. "It soaks you in."
The best part of the job, Zink said, is showing kids how nature works.
Exposing them to all the wonders in here in northern Harford County, he said, "it makes it all worthwhile."
