Okay - I have just 4 hives, 2 of which I've had for a year and 2 I just purchased today. I am about to retire and would like to sell some of the honey I get from my hives. I don't anticipate getting that much, but selling a few jars at a farmer's market or to friends, neighbors, etc. appeals to me and may help me pay for my equipment, buy my meds and pay my taxes. That said, in Florida, I am trying to find out if a small hobbyist/small business family enterprise can get any breaks from the strict regulations by the government on "processing" honey. I will only be using my honey bucket kit and gravity to fill a few jars of honey a couple of times a year. Will I still need to use a "certified kitchen" and take classes for a "food handler certification" as if I was a full blown restaurant? How can small folks like me make a few dollars if we have to shell out hundreds or thousands of dollars as if we were competing with big business? If we were to change the law here in florida to give a break to "the little guy", how many honey jars sold should determine "small business" vs. "big business?" Any suggestions?
