    Does it matter whether a really insignificant albeit mouthy segment of the population feels about eating honey?

    One of the late night guys did a segment awhile back where they went around and asked people if they were vegan, vegetarian, had a gluten allergy/ate gluten-free.

    Obviously they edit so they get the funny ones, but a remarkable number of people emphatically answer "Yes, I eat gluten-free." Or "Absolutely, I'm a vegan."

    When pressed to the next step, being asked (for instance), "What is gluten?" or "Why don't you eat gluten?" There are a lot of confused looks, stammering, and scoffing. So many of these goof balls don't know what the heck they're talking about. I'm sure they're great people for certain companies to have around. I bet you could sell them darn near anything.

    Bottom-line... the average run-of-the-mill veganite isn't doing any real destruction to the world or affecting me in any way. It is not worth your time to try to think rationally about someone who is acting emotionally. And as a general rule no one under the age of 60 wearing a beret or fedora is worth your time either. You'll find a significant amount of overlap here.

    We've had a friends daughter helping my wife at the farmers market sell our honey, and honey/beeswax products we make. last year she went vegan and gave up honey. I asked how she felt about making her living selling something she was morally opposed to, She said it was her problem and she was still sleeping ok so i quit teasing her. To me its not any stranger than all the other stuff people do and believe in.

    People will join groups to make thier life more fulfilling, whether it be religous, political, radical Islam, cults and it will sometimes take up all of thier time and energy. Most are harmless but irritating to others for some reason.....of course some are deadly and destrctive to human lives and property! What happened to emotional stability in the world or did we ever have it?

    And some of them are beekeepers. Or isn't that what you meant? We all have our"tribes".

    Yes, of course anything that is done with an all out passion whether good or bad..........I hope that we all find something to do with passion that is indeed fulfilling.

It isn't Honey and shouldn't be labeled as such, no matter how cutely misspell "honee". Whose Dept of Ag do I report these guys to?
    I was browsing through various States' laws after reading the thread on state bee laws, and that would almost for sure be a violation of MA state honey labeling laws. They're almost stricter on the labeling of honey than on the keeping of bees.

    I have once talk to a vegetarian/vegan woman who said she will not eat the honey because
    she doesn't want the bees to suffer and die. I did not argue with her....but isn't the bees dying
    after 6 weeks because of their natural way of being a bee? I mean we as humans will die after
    100 years or maybe early, right. Some suffer some don't. I just don't get her way of thinking
    sometimes. Because the way she think how cruel us beekeepers are exploiting the bees to get their honey.
    Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?

    if they eat that way because they think it's healthier thats fine but if they think it makes them innocent of killing animal life their mere existance on this planet has brought death and suffering to uncountable lives. every step they take causes unavoidable death and destruction.
    first colony out of a log 1983 beekeeping about 15 years. Warning i could be an idiot. I'm from South Jersey.

    Your a better person than I. These people often talk about the issues that concern them, which they read about from a blog, website, book, or heard on TV, yet other than stop eating certain foods, they are living a myth. And she sure is not walking her talk as the saying goes.

    I would be looking for her replacement. Like I said glad the world is filled with people that don't think like me, otherwise

    I don't like vegans or anyone else who murders broccoli or any other living thing for their own consumption.

    I limit my diet to rocks.

    Made from apples. I hope they were hand pollinated and no bee labor was used.

    In fact Vegans wouldn't be able to eat the vast majority of fruit or grains that require pollination for replanting.

So the bees can work in the hot sun in the field on the pollination side and that is fair game (not to mention the work they endure to pollinate all the other crops), but once they work in their own hive on the actual honey production (rather than in the apple orchard), it's animal cruelty? They are working hard either way.
