Re: Age Old Question, What to Do with All this Honey!
I'm a sideliner so I needed to find places to sell once I got to 20 producing hives. One of my best markets is a local church yard sale that happens once a month. Over time, I built up a very good customer base there.
I could easily sell 60 lbs of honey per year at work, and in fact I know I'm well over that now just by word of mouth as people from different departments found out about my honey sales. It took some time to get the word out and I do very well and no extra time or cost of sitting at a market table. I give my co-workers a special price just for that reason.
I recommend that you set a precedence right off--figure out a price before you start unless you do want to give honey away.
I found it quite annoying when people thought I should give the honey to them for nothing because I got the honey "free". I'm prepared with an answer now that folks can come and "u-pick" your own honey for a 50% discount. No takers yet.
