    My canola honey is water white this year and to me tastes like white sugar which makes sense because its main sugar is sucrose I read. people buying a honey bear for tea are the main customer. The people buying buckets and gallons want the same color alfalfa with a stronger taste. Some describe it as bitterness.

    Thumbs Up Re: Bulk honey prices and market outlook

    Honey must be really short right now in the US, because I just sold 15 barrels of 2018 clover for $3.05 a lb. Is anyone else seeing this, or did someone just pay to much to the beekeeper? No early honey in my area because of the last two months of rain.


    2017 and 2018 were short crop in my area. What is 2019 crop going to bring for honey prices????

    500-1000 hives mostly honey

    Yes, we can hope but I haven't heard anything very positive on honey prices this spring.

    An interesting document Jim.

    I would like to subscribe to that myself, is that possible for someone like me offshore, if so how do i subscribe?

    The USDA honey report is updated monthly, just save the address and check it every month for the updated report.

    I keep it as a shortcut on my desktop and reference it as needed.

    Someone in Montana raised 10,000+ lbs of honey off of spurge? I’ve seen bees “fatten up” a little off of the stuff but never enough to harvest.

    NW Ohio crop was above avg. this year. Small lots of barrels that's been sold at $2.65 a lb. to small packers. Talked to a big packer over a week ago. They wasn't buying honey. They bought all they needed for $1.15. I asked them if it was USA honey and they wouldn't say.

    At $1.15 how much do you have to avg per. hive to be able to make a living on just honey?

    At $1.15/lb, and running a business, what do you need? Sorry HH, how many hives and how much input?
    1000 hives @ 100 lbs = $ 115,000. Input costs? Labour? Mite treatments? Extraction costs?
    So variable, so many costs, such a small return....Just sayin’....
    Best you could do is ban imports. Except from Canada of course. LOL 😂
    Maybe a 400% import duty? From shaky and suspicious countries, of course. Your Prez is cool with duties....
    Best to you,
    Brian

    A buyer in Wisconsin is paying $ 1.70 a pound. Oach. Time to shut down the Phunnny Honey train.
