Re: Selling to bigger chain stores
Most of the time, direct retail is the only profitable way to sell honey. I pass the word that I have honey for sale and within a month, it is all sold. Having a greenhouse and bees sitting on my front porch helps because the people buying plants see the bees and ask for honey. I tell them to come back in August and I'll have fresh local honey for sale and tell them the price so they know what to expect. Good honey sells itself!
