Re: % of honey for local
Oh, yeah, that sort of thing. Yes, I do get tired of that sometimes. But I worked at Colonial Williamsburg answering the same question over and over all day for a long time. Some times you gotta change the answer to keep it fresh. "I'm not sure. What do you believe?". Which is different from "What do you THINK?", right? Most people believe things which aren't necassarily true or quantifiably provable.
Someone could slap a "Local" label on a jar of honey and people will make all sorts of assumptions not necassarily true at all. The buyer be ware.
I had a potential customer who decline the sale when she found that the closest yd to her was 25 miles away. How close does it have be produced to where someone lives to qualify as local. It's a sham. When I asked her what her allergys were, since that is why she wanted local honey, turns out she had none. What'sa guy to do?
