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.
