    I have heard of semi loads from $2.10/lb to as high as $2.75/lb for Orange blossom. $2.10 or $2.20/lb for Midwest clover. No info on sources.

    I'm not sure. It was .90 last year, I haven't called to find out this year yet.

    Sharpdog that price reminds me of the initial payment on spring wheat from the wheat board.

    I think all the major buyers are in a bit of a holding pattern on new crop pricing pending the outcome of the current crop. I heard a report of one major player floating the prospect of a $1.95 to $2.00 initial offering. I think the direction new pricing takes is just as dependent on how many producers are willing to sit tight if bids trend lower. Remember folks, honey keeps.

    Hasn't it always been that way? Those that need the money and sell early get less.

    What kind of volume? If you were selling just 1 55 gal drum, what kind of price would you ask?

    What I heard talked about was semi loads. That would be 70 some barrels per load. I don't sell honey in barrels. Sorry. And don't have my crop off yet, so I don't know how many buckets of honey I would have to sell, if I were to sell buckets.

    Yes. No doubt about it. I always jokingly tell buyers that I will wait until the fire sales are done before I get serious about selling.

    This week we sold small barrel orders for $2.75 a lb. and customers supplied there own barrels. We sold skids of buckets at $2.80 a lb.

    2014 crop looks better so far then 2013 did.
