    Default 5 gal. pails?

    Reading on here about selling your pails of honey to larger beekeepers. What do they do with it? Mark it up and resell it? Thanks.

    They buy it at wholesale price, mix it with everything else they've got, and sell it for a mark up either to a retailer or jar their own and sell it themselves. Its good if you produce tons of honey as they are a stable and consistent buyer that you can offload your entire harvest in one go. Quite the price hit though, poor on the margins.
