    Default Honey price

    Just wondering what does people sell there honey for and what size? I know this is going to vary from location to location but interesting to see. My father in law sells honey at his store that he buys from a supplier its not local by no means. He told me this last order he got in it had went up over $2 a quart his cost.
    I am thinking about pricing mine like this for this year.
    12 oz bear $5
    24 oz bear or Pint jar $10
    quarts $15

    I retail at $10.00/ pound, I sell out at this price every year, Looks like we'll have around 1000 lbs this year to sell. The thing about it is how fast do you want to sell it, a lot of folks around here sell way cheaper than me but as long as I sell it before next years crop is ready I'm satisfied. Everything below 1 lb sells to equal $10/ lb + cost of packaging.

    I'm just starting to asses the market but I sell at $6.00 per pound. I understand there are beekeepers here who get up to $10 per pound for sourwood.

    depends on how much you have and how well you market it... personly I think your way to cheap on the 24 and quarts.......if your 5 for 12, you should be 10 for 24 and so on... don't lower your value based on volume unless you have much more than you can sell!

    I sell 1/2 pints for $10 because I can. Whenever you are the only beekeeper and everybody is wanting "organic" honey, you can control the market. And people in my area are more than happy to pay for that.

    Last year $10 per pound. This year either $12 or $15 per pound. Don't know how that translates to the other sizes because I only sell one pound jars.
