Requirements for selling honey in stores and restaurants
Hello All -
I am a backyard beekeeper and have been giving my honey away to family, friends and clients for years. I am growing my beeyard from 3-20 hives this year and plan on getting serious on selling it.
What exactly is required from a legal standpoint for me to sell my honey on shelves in stores or in local restaurants? I have heard that the requirements are a bit more stringent if I am selling at stores versus farmers markets. I live in California and just set up an LLC for this operation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
