    Cool Re: How much are you all gettting for your honey?????? In Drums

    I'm not gettng anything anymore. I'm sold out! Sold at $1.95-2.35 in the barrel depending on size of load and how bad they needed it. Packers are still calling. Hold on to as long as you can and make them pay.

    $2.00 FOB our dock drum exchange. In small lots I must add 10 drum & under. The smaller mom & pop packers have no problems paying $2 bucks and passing the price on for a quality product that really sells it's self.
    Grandpaw always taught me that it's real tough to sell out of an empty cart.
    One beek called and told me that 2 bucks is a lot of money but then he complained and after thinking about it, not really he explained when he retails his for over $4 bucks and runs out.
    Trust me there is no quality white honey to speak of to be found in the midwest. And I base this on what other beeks are telling us.

    You did well beeware that's pretty much where the market has been since mid summer. I think you could probably get another .05 now for white though ela is still in the 1.55 range, these are major packer offerings. Smaller packers usually a bit higher, you just have to make your own call on who you are comfortable doing business with

    I got $2 for my crop this year. Yep, I wish I had back the 2005 crop when I got $.95. We've had some hundred pound crops since, but that was the last big one.
