Help Us Improve Texas Beekeeping Regulations

 

Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA) is a national organization that supports independent family farmers and protects a healthy and productive food supply for American consumers. FARFA promotes common sense policies for local & diversified agricultural systems, and is an advocate for independent farmers, ranchers, livestock owners, and homesteaders, as well as the consumers who support them. By protecting independent producers, we protect the safety, quality, and availability of our food.

FARFA has created a survey to help understand what is important to beekeepers in order to propose better beekeeping regulations in the State of Texas.

Below is a post from FARFA used with permission.

Please take the time to read and participate in the survey.

MAKE YOUR OPINION KNOWN!!

 


Did you know that Texas’ beekeeping regulations have not been significantly changed in more than six decades?

Over the past year, Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance has been working with Texas beekeepers who requested our assistance to update those regulations.

Because of the essential role bees play in making sure we have fresh, nutritious foods, this is an issue not only for beekeepers, but for farmers and consumers.

With the assistance of a number of beekeepers, we created a survey to gather information that will help us draft proposed changes to existing regulations. While the survey is primarily designed for beekeepers, it includes a shorter section for anyone who is concerned about protecting bees.

 

Please take this important survey today!

 

Whether or not you fall into the category of beekeeper or “bee supporter,” we encourage you to share this email with others so they can participate. Getting as much data as possible, particularly from beekeepers, will help us draft recommendations that are of the greatest benefit possible.
