    Smile Bartering honey

    I'm thinking of bartering honey for beef and pork how would you all go about doing this One Lb. of honey for three Lb. of beef or is that too high or too low.

    We do this kind of stuff everyone now and then. I would see where they are on their beaf prices, retail or wholesale then that is what my honey is worth.
    I just traded 5 gallon buckets of honey for Silver coins, spot prices. Good deal for both of us.
    Hope it works out for you.

    Well we have learned recently much about the scope of "big brothers" monitoring activities. I wonder if they forward much of what they learn to the IRS?

    barry we do not really think of you as big brother. I think that this was a reference to "our friends" in Washington.

    Thanks for the vote of confidence! But I'm not sure about Jim, those commercial guys have enough secrets to fill an Ives tower hive and they don't take kindly to any of it getting out. Rumor has it that I read PM's! I read it on the internet!

    We hear rumors you have been on here a lot lately because you are recuperating from surgery. Yeah, right, whatever. So how are things there in Virginia Barry?

    This meat would be locally processed and I would trade after he brought the meat home. Mostly roast and sausage.

    Barry is not in bed w/ the NSA. Bartering is selling in the eyes of the IRS.
