California "cottage foods" bill introduced and passed!
Effective January 2013 it looks like small honey producers will be able to process and sell their honey legally, up to $35,000 in 2013, $40,000 in 2014 and $50,000 in 2015.
After taking some food processing test and paying somewhere between $200-$400 dollars per year you can get the permit to process honey in your own kitchen.
Its a start, but the permits are still pricey considering it would take atleast 20 bottles of honey to pay for the permit at $10 a bottle, and that doesnt include the price of the bottle and label!!
