Artisan Acacia Honey

Honey is bee vomit. Unless the maker of this product ate flower nectar and regurgitated delicious golden ambrosia, he/she is not an artisan. He/she is a materials handler.

As far as I know there is no way to get honey without putting on the hazmat suit and reaching into the hive. So, while that is a time-honored labor of love, the actual honey is simply not artisanal.

I feel a rule coming on here: If an animal made it (honey, milk, uncured/unprocessed meat) it is not artisan. And you will be labeled a a d-bag if you try to take credit for it.
