New Florida Beekeeping Law?
I've heard there is going to be a new law going into effect July 1st in Florida called the "Right To Farm Act".
From what I hear, this law allows the State to supercede all local ordinances against beekeeping in residential areas. Me and Sarasota County Code Enforcement have been going round and round on this issue for years.
This looks like my chance to finally start a couple of hives on my property. My neighbors all support me.
There have been times when I've seen no bees for months at a time, yet my fruit trees and vegetable plants are covered with flowers, just begging to be pollinized.
At those times, all my hopes lie with the nocturnal activities of moths.
I'm studying the art of beekeeping as fast as I can, and by July I should pretty much know what to buy and where to find it.
Anybody else here planning to take the plunge?
