Re: For those aspiring Commercial or Sideliners
Good points all Sheri. White honey is currently in the low $2.00 range. I first entered the almond "game" around 1998 and prices were in the $30 to $35 range. Honey had just fallen off its remarkable and short lived run up to around $1.50 per pound and was back around .80. We were thrilled to pick up that almond check and looked at it as a way to recoup some of our spring start up expenses and this was all long after the impact of varroa.
