    Default How to get started?????

    By next year I hope to start selling my honey, but how do I get where I'm legal to sell it? Do I need a Lic.? I am located in Florida and will be selling it from home.

    You need a permit and have a facility up to code for the processing of your honey(honey house). Here are some links...

    This one touches on a few of the general points. http://www.beekeepersofputnamcounty....ll-your-honey-

    Most of the folks I know that sell honey from home don't have an up to code honey house.

    I am also in Florida, lets say one was offered by a business posessing a food handlers license, and a food approved to kitchen to have one's honey bottled there. What documentation would be required to then sell at farmers markets or wholesale to small businesses?
