    Re: Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws

    Selling 2500 lbs at farmers markets/hand to hand can be pretty hard to do. That is where the "teeth" comes from. Its an arbitrary number mostly. If you are cranking out a few tons of honey then you...

    Re: Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws

    My main problem with the bill is that it restricts us from selling in small local stores. If they want to state that I can only bottle and sell my own honey (which I of course do) I am 100% behind...

    Re: Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws

    I am not against it per se, but it does solidify that we cannot sell on store shelves -- which was never an issue before. Whole Foods is a different matter -- they require mountains of paperwork for...

    The way I read it we cannot sell honey at retail locations (our house is ok), only direct to consumer. This...

    Re: Where can I buy a Kerhof hive?

    The maker of the H3 is, I think, dead. I met him about five years back. He was very sick and the prognosis did not look good. Original Kerkhofs are hard to get and a bit old now anyway. That is...

    Re: Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws

    You are correct Michael, but in this case there are no new laws. They are just changing their position and "interpreting" the law differently. This interpretation of course directly causes money to...

    Re: Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws

    They will not react. They want you to spend 30k building a commercial kitchen to sell your honey. It is not about safety. It is about the Texas inspector being in collusion with the AHPA and BigAg to...

    Re: honey and botulism

    My point was that they didnt find any spores in the honey, but blamed it anyway. I have researched this for years and never found a direct link.
