    Default $1.75 Honey

    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?

    Any ideas?

    Default Units mixed up?

    Hi

    Looks like somebody mixed up $/lb and EUR/kg. International market prices are about 1.70 EUR/kg in barrels.

    Kind regards

    Our honey cooperative is suggesting the market holding at 1.5$ Canadian funds, Not too far of US funds anyway,

    Right and WRONG.

    Five gallons of honey/ 60 lbs of honey at $120.00 per comes out to $2.00 per lb. Not 67 cents. So $24.00/gallon is correct and 67cents per pound is incorrect. I don't know how you got the 67 cents/lb idea. Maybe you shouldn't use a calculator.
