Ellis Vanderpool>ISM Interviews M-Z>ISM Interviews M-Z, Segment 14
- GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS
- Discusses how State of Illinois needs to inspect beehives if moving hives from county to county. Also mentions how local health departments have their own rules and regulations and there are only 3-4 bee inspectors in the entire state and how he had to register the hives with Homeland Security because they're selling the honey to grocery stores.
- FARMER'S MARKET
- Mentions selling honey at the Farmer's Market and talking with customers; says he still has apple and peach trees on his property.
- Says kids went to college so they didn't have to worry about working at home with the beehives and how he wants them to do their own thing rather then getting them to work on the farm.
