Well, I am starting early trying to figure out how i am going to sell the honey that i plan on getting this spring. I am shooting for getting about 55 gallons, may be closer to half that. Thats not the point though.
I have looked at all the feed stores, small non chain gas stations, and health food stores- they all have a supplier of local or "local" (we have a guy flooding the health food store(s) with "local" "honey") honey. The large semi local trades days has several guys selling it already. So those are out. Also all the farmers markets have guys selling more of that "local honey" I have a grower that i can sell a bunch to. But that still does not leave hardly any options
What are your thoughts on road side stands? I live on a rural oil top road that about 20-30% of the people have been in jail or close to it, so do not think that that is the best option. Cannot really see the stand from my house to. I could get plenty of traffic from 2-3 highways. But does me know good if someone has stolen it all. Better way to do this?
Has anybody set a case down at your work or a relatives work or even a large business in the break room with a jar for money? Would this work?
I can sell it by word of mouth, but really need something lined up to supplement that...for some reason (maybe they are like minded) most of the people in our circles are penny pincher's and would not pay the prices that I can get.
Only other thing i can think of is pull off the highway on an abandoned driveway and sell it off the tailgate...any thoughts on this?
Please anybody hints?
