(yes, I understand there is no "Vegan Rated" standard, there is some community sensibility and consensus -- that is what I am seeking to understand here)

While the standards and expectations of Vegan food is clear -- no Animal Products in there, often up to and including Honey -- what about the Production Methods?

For example . . . if Domesticated Hive Bees are not used for Honey, is it still "permitted," for such bees to be used to intentionally pollenate intentionally Vegan crops?

How about "free range" chickens to eat bugs and pests in and around Vegan crops? (not talking about eating the chickens nor eggs).

Other examples one may think of . . . . .

Is there any consensus or guidelines?

To answer your question, I don't think there is an across the board guideline for much of anything above and beyond laws. The path that I try to take is to follow my moral compass, that usually gets me where I need to be. As individuals we are all a little bit different with somewhat similar wants and needs. Ideally we need to follow our hearts but yet be respectful of other's choices.
