Re: Texas Honey House Laws or Production Laws
Its impossible not to break some law or other as a beekeeper in the state of Texas (and, I suppose many other states). If you move a colony to or through another county, you need a permit. If you move your hive tool through another county you need a permit. If you sell bees you need a permit & inspections. If you remove bees from structures you need a permit (one for each county). If you sell queens you need a permit & inspections. If you sell honey, any honey, you are required to hold a 'Food Manufacturing' license -or, bottle your honey in a licensed facility, one member of our Club has that license so we can use his facility. The permits for moving cost $35 and are valid for one move. The other permits are renewed annually. That is the tip of the iceberg.

I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up :)
