NJ Dept. of Agriculture Adopts Beekeeping Rules

The NJ Dept. of Agriculture adopted new rules aimed at regulating beekeeping within the state. The League was a key stakeholder in developing these regulations, however, the standards fall short of providing adequate protections.

Last week the New Jersey Department of Agriculture adopted new rules aimed at regulating beekeeping within the state. The League was a key stakeholder in developing these regulations, however, the standards fall short of providing adequate protections for the health, safety, and welfare of our communities.

You should review these adopted rules carefully as it allows for municipalities to become the enforcement agent. For more information on the rules including a brief overview of them, please see the League’s recent blog post.
