    You don't need any certification to sell your 100 jars of honey to your customers. You need that certification to protect those people who you would hire to sell the product for you. If you can...

    He sold out early, obviously the other producers pricing didn't interfere with his sales. He needs to raise his prices or get more hives, probably both, that is the solution.

    I advise my customers to stay well clear of those saying their honey is non-gmo/organic in North America. They are liars and crooks. And I prefer canola honey over clover personally for taste.
