    cg3, I have a Amish customer in your neck of the woods. He moves over 10,000 lbs a year, of my honey and he might be buying from others too. I'm sure in the amish world he is the biggest honey producer.

    Could be, but to me it's really not a big deal. All marketing is suspect. I'd say honey sold by the Amish is "Amish Honey" as much as furniture made from purchased wood is "Amish Furniture". I still have a problem with a bunch of redneck carpenters working for an Amish guy as "Amish Builders" but that's just me.
    For those who care, there's nothing better than a "How do you know it's local honey if you don't know the beekeeper?" sticker.

    Maybe I should get a sticker which says, "Produced and Packaged by Mark Berninghausen". Anyone who thinks that my name is Amish doesn't know much about the Amish.

    The Amish guy who built my parents house married a Menonite and converted. Because of that he could use power tools on the house.
