I've got 1600 lbs of honey so far this year, and I go to the "Marketing" section of this forum and there are only 10 threads in the entire forum. Apparently people on this forum are only interested in keeping bees, but have no need to do anything with their honey?
How does one sell their honey if everywhere you look, there is someone else all ready offering honey. The farmers markets are full, the shops, groceries, and wineries all ready have someone supplying honey to them. So how does one either find new locations (when they all seem to be taken all ready), or 'convince' shops to stock your honey instead of someone else's? I know I don't want to undercut the competition pricing since that doesn't help anyone in the long run. 1600 lbs of honey is a bit more than I can just sell to friends/family/coworkers. I've gotten an offer from a local guy who is setup in the farmer's market to buy my honey wholesale, but when I can make 3 to 4 times as much by selling it retail I am not in a big rush to take the wholesale approach.
