Yes I do Mark and fully understand the necessity to a long term commitment to reach success.

Dutch Gold is selling drums for 1.90$ A friend told me
Drums at $1.90 each? They'll all be gone by the time I can get there.
Or did you mean that Dutch Gold is selling barrels of honey at $1.90 per pound? I find that hard to believe too, unless that's Bakery Grade Honey. Which seems low to me too.
Better ask your friend for an explanation. I guess empty drums could be going for $1.90/lb, but that seems pretty high. That's close to $90.00 per drum.
1.90 a pound for honey in the drum plus freight he just bought 2 drums
Huh, how about that. I wonder what they paid for it?
a lot less I would think
Would this be processed,filtered,blended, honey or raw unproessed imported honey?
coming from Dutch Gold, it would be filtered, processed and everything else. I spoke to a MD beekeeper with 3000 colonies, he was offered 2.95 lb in the barrel.
How many barrels did he sell at that price? One?
A 3,000 colony beekeeper from MD? Who would that be? There's enough room in MD for a 3,000 colony operation?

Doesnt Dutch Gold import alot of their honey?
They have a pretty impressive packing place.
Imperial folks use 44 gallon drums - US gallon is smaller. My mistake, should have made sure it was more clearly defined. Drum is the same size, but not Barrels that is a different measurement ......
What is everybody getting paid for honey commercially.
I talked with three today about Pepper honey. All said they were taking it but none would give a price yet. Told me it is too early and one said market is "too volatile right now". Whatever that means.
$2.01 for ELA and $2.10 for white from Kansas.

I wouldn't call it particularly volatile. Prices always slip a bit when new crop honey starts coming in. Some buyers may hold off a while in hopes of a big crop but my guess is they will be disappointed.
