Rather than integrating it into their cottage food laws, Oklahoma has a separate law that allows for the sale of honey for small-scale producers. The “Oklahoma Honey Sales Act” (SB 716) lets beekeepers sell directly to customers at different venues, if they produce less than 500 gallons of honey per year. They may not sell indirectly (such as through a retail store) and the honey must be unaltered, but they do not have to register or get inspected by the health department. This law went into effect on July 1st, 2013.
Only the beekeeper or members of the family can sell the honey.
The honey cannot be combined with other products — it must be raw.
The producer cannot produce more than 500 gallons of honey per year.
