Anyone read "Grower's Gamble" in Planning yet? Have you had experence with local farmers markets? One issue mentioned was lack of suppliers of a wide range of products. One issue here in Florida is the requirement (State Department of Ad.) that any processed food must be prepared in an insprcted facility that is totally separated from any living quarters. Processed includes "packing".
I inquired if I would have to get a license to sell section honey. The bees "pack" the sections in the hive and the only thing I would do would be to take the section out of the frame and put a top and bottom cover and a lable band around the edge to seal it. Yep, thacking, so I can't do it in my garage even. And I have to get a $100 license each year to just sell a day at a local market.
This BS does not exist in Hungary and they are not dropping like flies from bad food.
I can see regs for milk products, but honey, jam, etc?
In my opion this is not green at all.
