I suppose there is a market for honey that has "certified", "registered", "organic", "unmedicated", "chemical free" and the like on a label. I would feel badly if the public at large came to feel that all honey is garbage if these phrases are not found on the label. It would be my hope that most local beeks that sell honest raw honey to local consumers would not have to place any such alarming words as chemical free on a honey label. I have sold most of my 300 pounds as "Pure Raw Honey" at farmers market and from my home, and folks have not required these rather alarming disclaimers from me. I do understand that to some folks, these assurances in print are important. However I feel that to most purchasing honey produced locally, the basic idea is that it is inherently different in these ways from big time honey.
FYI, I use integrated pest management . . . sbb's, strong Texas queens every other year, and a powdered sugar spritz late summer and fall. Yeah, I have mites to count, but not so many as to cause stress on the hives. No meds, but I cannot speak to the nectar sources near by. I have been fortunate, I know. I sell honey (link to my site is in my profile if one is interested) the old fashion way, in gussied up pint and quart mason jars for around $4.50 a pound, labeled as pure raw honey. When I extract, the temps still in the 80's and honey flows well without heat.
Guess what I am saying is I saw a lot of words that, if included on honey lables, could cast a cloud generally on a pretty wholesome product. What I did not see here is any discussion on just plain raw honey and trusting your producer. Granted in this the 21st century trust in our foods and food manufacturers is not what it used to be. My small market here is content with what we sell. I hope it is always so with me and you! JP
