    Sticky: Re: Bulk honey prices and market outlook

    Yes Nick, that's right.
    Just so I'm clear. Packing, marketing, and retailing the honey you produce is a great business plan. In years when the price is down it is an especially good plan. ...

    I have not received any such letter from Suebee. I expect the price at Suebee to end up slightly higher than the open market price, kind of like it was last year. That will be 2 years in a row...

    I don't think Sue even accepts melter honey from members. I think a disposal fee might even be in place. I thought the color was pretty good the last few years when I checked.

    Supply and demand of raw bulk honey is the only thing that will raise or lower prices of raw bulk honey.

    The sliding thing is normal. If it won't slide in the cell when tipped it probably is no good. You should wait to do this check at least until Saturday or Sunday for a Monday hatch.

    Agreed. Small orders will cost you dearly no matter what side of the border you're on. Several thousand vs 1 is not comparable. Even 100 isn't getting all that close.

    OK. 3# packages, orders of 100 in CA are $75. A modest set up will haul 1,000 - 1,500 cages. A delivery cost of $10 each is $15,000. That kinda money will get you a long way into the prairie. ...
