    Re: Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws

    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...

    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...

    We have, (until recently it seems), been exempted from this BS. Now one or two fools have decided to clamp down on independent beekeepers. Because people are dying left and right from our...
