    Default Retail Price for Bee-O-Pac Comb Honey??

    I have a bunch of honey comb in my freezer. They are the honey comb sections from the Bee-O-Pac comb honey system. I feed out the ones that are not completely sealed and plan to only sell the perfect ones. I have no idea what to charge. I have been selling 1lb jars of pure honey to friends for $5/lb. How do you price comb honey?? I will be selling it at a local farmer's market.

    Thanks,
    BDJ

    $4 sounds fair. It took some work to get the comb honey.

    At the end of the first year the supper was about 1/2 full. This was during a busy time when our family was relocating. So although not good hive management, I left it on over the winter and into the following spring and summer.

    When I finally got around to working with my bees again they had completely filled most of the sections. I would have expected it to be darkened or stained but it isn't. I really like the comb honey and it is fun to have and share. I haven't decided if I want to try it again.

    I have heard that it works better to spray the plastic with sugar syrup when introducing it. I didn't try that.
