I think I know the answer to this question but it came up when my wife was selling pails of honey to some people today.
These people have a Bent and Dent store plus they sell bulk foods. They were told by another beekeeper that they can't buy honey from anyone that is not licensed in WI. This beekeeper was charging them $2.79 lb in 5 gal pails and said the price is so high now because he had to be licensed.
What's the deal? Sounds like bogus claims for profit.
