Re: Our country has lost close to half of the managed bee colonies it had in the 1940
I think the demand for raw/local/minimally processed honey is out there and is growing fast. However, the problem is tapping into the local market without over saturating it. Small boutique producers can do well up to a point, but if you have to start selling honey out of state and to wholesalers (to make a decent living), you start losing the "local" appeal. This is really good for side-liners serving local and small regional markets, but not so much for larger commercial outfits.
