I have a friend who asked me if I'd heard of anyone getting $1.75/lb for their honey. I have not. Has anyone else?
I do have another friend who told me today that a western honey buyer offered to pay him $1.50 for his honey, to be picked up in northern NY. What w/ the price of fuel, that would make the investment in the honey more than $1.75. Wouldn't it? The honey producer and the honey buyer are about 1,000 miles apart.
Is there a shortage of honey in the U.S.? Forgien suppliers?
