    Default Add the cost of bottle and labels?

    I have read the posts discussing price per pound that you all sell your honey for, but does that include the price of bottles and labels, or do you add the cost of packaging to the final price?

    My local Bee-Supply/Honey store charges per pound plus container, so I guess it goes either way.

    If you are selling honey in anything other than a barrel, all costs should be included in the price.

    Are empty barrels free?
    I want a free barrel!.

    The price you charge per pound should include every cost to bring your product to market.

    How do I caculalate the opportunity cost of time spent on Beesource?

    It has been a long time since I have sold honey by the barrel. When I did, I got barrels from somewhere and when I delivered them to the packer I brought home barrels for the next season. I got X for the honey, per pound.

    When I sell honey in 5 gallon totes, I get $3.00/lb and I get the tote back when I make the next delivery.
