Rules on the register of bee forage sources, bee forage organisation and the bee forage forecast programme, 2013 (Slovenia)
Bee pasture management rules are basic set of rules for beekeeping. This rules enable the beekeeper to set the beehives on designated spots (also in forest), for which he/she has to apply in advance; spots have to be agreed upon the landowner (written agreement or a contract); and the cadastre of bee pastures have to exhibit presence of honeyflow (honeydew) capable plant species.
The beekeeper has to comply with specific rules (registered beehives, agreement with the landowner, number of beehives, min. distance to the next spot …) to be able to do beekeeping and produce honey/bee-products.
The operator of bee pasture management rules are local beekeeping associations – they award the beekeeping spots and also provide a link between beekeepers, landowners and official services.
There is no provisions on fees for the spots (between landowner and the beekeeper). It is usually compensated by means of payment in kind – honey or other bee products.
There is no special division between professional and self-consumption form of beekeeping.Beehives can be a part of the farm by definition of the farm estate, and for those, above mentioned rules do not comply.
