    Why do you ask? Do you have the desire to broker honey?

    I have no idea what it takes. Look to those doing it for advice, I would suggest. Best wishes.

    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.

    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.

    Matt, lesson one for a "to-bee-broker" learn the jargon! Can I assume "in-the-barrel" is a food grade 44 gallon drum? Can I assume this price is "net" weight of the honey excluding "barrel" weight and will the barrel be priced separately as part of shipping costs. Sorry for all the questions, but I have to start somewhere. I thank you in advance of your educational answer. http://www.beesource.com/forums/imag...cons/icon5.gif

    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?

    Who sells honey in 44 gallon barrels. Learn the jargon. Barrels are 55 gallons.

    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 ......

    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.

    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.
