How many of you are selling pollen in addition to honey, and what prices are you getting? I've found it to be fairly profitable, limited only by the amount it's possible to safely take from the hive. Retail prices at local health food stores are in the $15 to $30/lb. range. This is for "fresh" pollen, which often isn't fresh in the store, but spoiled and sour, especially at the lower end of that price range. I used to retail mine at farmers' markets for $12 in a 5 oz. container, and sold all I produced. This was several years ago though, so perhaps I'd sell it for more today. Anyone getting more than that? Wholesale prices to the beekeeper in the Eugene, Oregon area are currently about $.75 to .95 per oz. for clean, fresh (i.e., not dried) pollen. So, fellow beekeepers, how are prices in your area?
I am also curious if any of you are selling pollen for spring buildup to other beeks. Anyone doing this? If so, what's your pricing like?
