Beekeepers receive support from Governor

Beekeepers receive support from Governor

The beekeeping industry in Hawaii received support from the Governor today.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed into law Senate Bill 482 (Act 131) which allows beekeepers to sell honey out of their homes without a permit.

Beekeepers are only allowed to sell up to 500 gallons of honey per year. And they must put adequate labels on each container listing that the honey was home-produced and that honey shouldn’t be eaten by infants under one year old. The beekeepers must also go through an approval process by the State Department of Health and provide adequate records of their production for two years.

Hawai`i Board of Agriculture Chairperson Russell Kokubun said the bill will help with the sustainability of the beekeeping industry.
