Domestic organic honey certification?
The wife was checking into organic certifiction for our honey. Several different regulating bodies. for all our efforts to going chem free...we will not be able to say organic...any time soon.
Seems kinda arbitrary. Are there any beekeepers on the rule-making boards?
They need a reality check.
some of the stipulations require that no non-organic nectar or pollen sources for the bees be present -for miles in every direction. How can they require such a thing when, for all practical purposes that place doesnt exist- on this earth. There's always some nitwit spraying something on some plant or bug- no matter how far out you go. Also No syrup, no brewer's yeast patties...
no wonder there's no domestic organic honey. I saw a jar of Indian honey that said organic, I thought yeah right.
Organic Honey Advertised at Top of BeeSource Page
While reading this thread, :doh: I saw an article for Certified Organic Canadian Raw Honey right on the top of this page, 2 items over from the BeeSource logo.
The link points to:
Tish tish. For Shame.:bs:
organic honey is full of some of the same
misrepresentations as organic maple syrup.
mostly people trying to milk an extra dollar from their business and greenwashing their appearance.
some use the $5000 exclusion rule. if you only sell under 5K of farm products you can call them organic without paying for the certification. what a joke. like who is counting the jars going out the back door?
when in Rome do what the Romans did, crucify the truth.
When in Rome do what the Romans do, crucify the truth. Just do what the Hindu beeks did, start your own certification organization. Then you can certify your honey is from Mars if you want. Hey, I just saw an ad that was selling organic Mars honey, made from green cheese blossoms.
