    Don't want to leave the impression that the honey crop was a disaster....just a bit disappointing at the end. A good beekeeper must super optimistically, yet realistically, some years it pays off, some years it dosent.

    Quality Honey will always be in demand, if you can't sell it then feed it back to your bees

    VIETNAM - THE COUNTRY PRODUCES SIXTEEN THOUSAND TONS OF HONEY PER YEAR
    The company DakHoney in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak, reported that US $ 20 million entered by honey exports after their last shipment to the United States.

    In 2013, production of the company reached eight thousand tons, representing half of the national performance of this item.

    In the period from January to September 2013 Vietnam has sent the United States a total of 24,048 tons of honey or almost 50% more of the annual production of the country.

    Groeb Farms transformed into Natural American Foods ,headquartered in Onsted, Mich. and Smokey the Bear is our USA-made Grade A Honey. In partnership with the USDA Forest Service, we launched the Smokey the Bear branded-retail product in 2013. Smokey supports American bee-keepers by sourcing honey directly from US hives. And even more importantly, a portion of the proceeds from every sale of Smokey The Bear honey go to support the educational efforts of wildfire prevention. Being a good corporate citizen is important to us, and we believe that Smokey is one of the many ways we show it.


    Many players with lawsuits and a new player in this game.I hope the dealer is still The American Beekeeper.Its going to be interesting how and when this all plays out, ....maybe it already has

    Wholesale pricing is for larger quantities, often trailer load (40,000 + lbs). Current offerings are around $2.10 for white. $1.90 ELA. Assuming you choose to deal with buyers that pay on time with checks that clear.

    Average Retail prices http://www.honey.com/honey-industry/...-month-retail/
    Wholesale prices http://www.honey.com/honey-industry/...nth-wholesale/

    Take note those these are prices for processed honey, which I would take to mean bottled in what would actually be sold from the store shelf. Also, local markets vary from one place to another.

    Odem International is forward contracting 2014 Canadian honey crop at 2.25(WHITE) If anything has taught me anything about forward pricing in the honey market, it , the price will be 2.40 or 2.60 come fall, and if the price drops, well the contract will not be worth the paper its written on

    I hope your right, there are a lot of positive market factors working for us. Was that Odem offer based on a truckload?
