Special Label Guarantees Kentucky Honey
Toni Riley of the Farmland Publications writes:
“The certified label guarantees the honey is from hives in the state from bees who have foraged within a few miles of those hives. A Kentucky Proud label does not provide that same assurance.”
The article in The News-Enterprise of Elizabethtown, KY is from an interview at the 2021 Kentucky State Fair with Scott Moore, CKHP Manager, and Tom Ballinger, President.
The Certified Kentucky Honey Producers (CKHP) program is established by Kentucky State Beekeepers Association (KSBA). The purpose is to promote the sale of local honey that is produced by the beekeepers of the KSBA and is a genuine product of the State; and to connect the local beekeepers with consumers who are looking to purchase local honey.
