Some more information on the 2nd Annual Kaua’i Honey Tasting at the KCFB Fair.

If you are a honey producer and would like to have your honey showcased and for sale at the August 23 event you will need to provide the following labeling information on each bottle for sale:

         (A)  The name and address of the producer;

         (B)  The net weight and or volume of the honey, by standard measure;

         (C)  The date the honey was produced; and

         (D)  The statement, “This product is home-produced and processed.”

The above was from this website which also included this information:

  A home-based agricultural producer of honey shall not be required to process honey in a certified honey house or food processing establishment, or be required to obtain a permit from the department of health, if the producer:

     (1)  Sells less than fifty gallons of honey a year;Image

     (2)  Sells the honey directly to consumers; and

     (3)  Labels each container of honey sold with:

         (A)  The name and address of the producer;

         (B)  The net weight and volume of the honey, by standard measure;

         (C)  The date the honey was produced; and

         (D)  The statement, “This product is home-produced and processed.” in clear and conspicuous print.

The Kaua’i Beekeepers Association  ( KBEE ) and the KCC Apiary Program in a collaborative fashion with the Kaua’i County Farm Bureau will host the 2nd Annual Kaua’i Honey Tasting on opening night of the KCFB Fair, Thursday August 23, from 6:00 – 8:30pm.

The tasting will feature local honey from Kaua’i apiaries and will offer participants the chance to sample select choices of current and early season harvests as well as aged honey from a variety of local sources. The tasting offers consumers an opportunity to learn a little bit more about the honey products available from local apiaries and purchase directly from Kaua’i honey producers.

Honey from local apiaries will bee on sale during the tasting as well as during the remainder of the Fair at the KBEE informational booth. For more information about the tasting or to submit a honey sample please contact KBEE Chair Jimmy Trujillo at 346 7725.
