I brought another jar of honey that wasn't creamed but has a hint of fermentation.  I eat this regularly.  However, I left the jar in Myrtle Beach at my brothers house.  I don't know if I will have any left by next year for a taste test.  Maybe everyone could bring a sample of their honey to Beefest 2018 and pass it around.
We have given our employer notice that we are moving to FL by Nov. this year.  That means I have to get rid of my bees so I am unsure if I will have a new crop of honey to bring to FL.
Another dilemma is how to get 20 gals of mead down to FL.  Anyone know what the law is for transporting mead?
Oooh a honey taste panel/contest. Great idea.

Brian,
Why aren?t you going to bring your bees? Just have them inspected before you transport.

Or not and tell the nice officer they are comfort support animals.   If some bozo can try to take a peacock on an airliner as a support animal, almost anything is believable.

Dallas,
 :happy:
Most officers are not going to stop a small load of bees but it is not that hard to call your inspector and have the proper paperwork to go from NY to FL.
My late Father in law just had it done last year to send 2 hives from PA to SC. He had no problems at all. As a mater of fact, they even went so far as to say he was mite and beetle free. He does not use chemicals.

Brian,
Why aren?t you going to bring your bees?

Over 1400 miles and the days of driving 24 hours straight are long gone.  I could be wrong but I believe transplanting bees from Upstate to West Palm Beach is too far for them to survive.  Not acclimated.  No different than buying bees form GA and expecting them to make it up here.  And finally there is the place we bought.  No way in heck the HOA is going to allow bees.
Once we get down there the wife wants a permanent home with more land and no restrictions.
I was thinking if a gallon or so of mead fell off the truck near Jacksonville on our way down you would be up to selling me some bees to get started again.
After I do my splits I will put out the word to sell them all off.  The less we have to bring the better.
FYI My wife has run the largest storage facility in Upstate NY for about 30 years.  She has seen hundreds and hundreds of people store their house hold and move 1500 miles away.  Then in a couple three years they realize the cost of moving their stuff is more then what their stuff is worth. And they already paid more in rent then what their stuff is worth.  So we are selling everything.  40 years of collecting vintage, antiques, do dads and furniture.  I have got the problem of figuring out what tools to bring.

Keep in mind, you have a stopover place about halfway, if the need ""or desire"" to use it arises.

call your inspector and have the proper paperwork to go from NY to FL.

Good luck with that, NY has one inspector who focuses on the 60 commercial operations in the state.
