    Default Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws

    This year I have 7 hives and plan to gather more for the next couple of years, but I'm not sure what to do about a honey house. For now I'm operating in my garage and home kitchen and I was thinking about selling some honey at the local farmers market. Do I need to get a food handlers permit? Do I need to have a commercial kitchen that has been inspected?

    That question has been discussed here before.http://www.beesource.com/forums/arch.../t-225584.html
    The answer ultimately is 'it depends'. Where I am located I can sell just about anything I want off my front porch or out of the back of my car. The closer you get to a large town or city the harder it gets.
    Generally I've found here in Texas anything goes. Til someone says it doesn't if you know what I mean.

    Some states it maters if you're selling for resale or not.
    If you don't proses the honey or add any fruits, nuts etc. & are selling to the end user it might not mater.

    I do not know the laws, need to start looking up, have a couple of options on just going somewhere and packing.
    I do know that the kitchen is a NO-NO.
