Handbook for Natural Beekeeping

Certified Naturally Grown’s apiculture standards are developed with the primary focus on the health of honey bees and the sustainability of beekeeping. The handbook outlines best practices for the beekeeping industry with these priorities as guides, and with the secondary focus on the agricultural products of apiculture (honey, pollen, and propolis).

This handbook covers the basic CNG Certification Standards for apiary management and honey. CNG standards for beeswax, queens, nucleus colonies, and package bees will be published separately.
