    I noticed that on Betterbee on their web site offers your product for sale. On the site it indicates that you need to add sugar and vegetable oil to create the patties. Is this the same product? No mention of this type of product on your web page? I was also looking at your web page and I don't see what is the percentage of pollen? 15% or what? I am going to order some of your product but just wanted to be clear in what I was purchasing. Thanks!

    The above is a new product formulation in that it contains protein supplement, sugar, vitamins, minerals, oil/fat and essential oils. You, the beekeeper, just add water. The other product on Better Bees web site was more commercially geared in that the beekeeper added the sugar, oil, water.

    Neither product contain natural pollen.

    Hope this helps,

    Janne,

    I appreciate your feedback. There is simply a fixed cost in getting a package processed and delivered to your door. Unfortunately there is no way around that. A 2lb Bag O' Bee Food is all that will fit in a flat rate USPS shipping box, which is the best shipping price we were able to find. We wanted to make this product available to beekeepers that have a hive or two to feed. This allows them to make fresh, nutritious patties, with no preservatives when they need them.

    Save on the shipping and enjoy our meeting special. Come see us at Wooster!

    Pollen sub postings for years have included many "what about me" postings from small keepers who cannot use a 40 lb bag or a tote. I think this offer is in recognition of those requests(complaints), rather than a big money maker. It really is no faster to process a 2 lb order than a 40 lb bag order. On that point, I think JSL and KJ would have no formula dispute.

    It is hard and slow to get good ingredients for small batches, lots of left over ingredients.

    Do you offer local pickup in order to avoid shipping?

    We do not offer local pickup. We are trying to make it to some of the local meetings this spring.

    Hmmm, that is too bad.
    I'm not going to pay shipping to ship across town.
    So, please post the meetings you plan to attend.
