    Hello I know that honey is sold by weight not fluid, but the thing I am trying to figure out is which jars to buy if I want pint jars since people normally do not understand weight and pounds that much. Would I get 1.5 jars then tell others that they are pint jars or what? I have heard a quart...
  2. Products of The Hive
    Forgive me if this question has been asked before on the forum - I couldn't see it anywhere. I'm making beeswax candles with coconut oil (1 cup coconut oil to 1 kg wax). I'm pouring them into candle jars, and I'm trying to make it so the wax either sticks completely to the jar, or else pulls...

  7. Commercial Beekeeping
    I'm anticipating a pretty good honey flow this year - at least good for me - and need to find a good source to buy jars and bottles in bulk. I've Googled for them and found several sites that sell them, but their prices seem pretty high. I spoke with one place today who told me they were...
