Sorry about that ,you have to have a survey code no. they give you. The letter says.
'

In December,the U.S departmentof agriculture's National Agriculture Statistics Servive (NASS) will conduct the annual Bee and Honey Survey.This survey provides comprehensive information about honey production and value in the United States.

Nearly 8,000 producers in all 50 states will be askl to participate in this national survey,which focuses on all apiaries with 5 or more colonies.NASS will gether information on number of colonies,honey production,stocks,and prices.

If we do not receive your response by December 27, a NASS representative will conact you by telephone and help you complete the survey at that time.

That is what i was wondering, that's why i posted this to see if anyone else got one. :confused: No i'm not registered with the state, although the Mo. Governor got a jar of my honey with name and address when our Farmers Market gave him a gift basket for giving us an award for best Farmers Market. :thumbsup: I don't think that had anything to do with this, This came from the USDA dept.

OH! you are in big trouble Jack. likely homeland security picked up on your conversation about nucs and they are now preparing a nice warm spot for you at Gitmo.
