Hello, this is my first year and need to order some bottles. I think 1lb for sure but was wondering about 8 or 12 oz or 2lbs. 8oz seems small but more options out there.

Thanks

I went 8 oz and 1 pound. Now looking at them I am wishing I would have included 2 pound.

I am sure the 8 oz will sell for the folks that want to buy some but have only a few bucks. My first year, so I guess we will find out what they want.

I use 8oz, 16oz, and 32oz. I sell more 8oz than 16oz. It's nice to have options but don't make it confusing. People will buy what you have available.

I've sold mostly 1#, and a few 8oz, and the least of 2#

As far as best size bottles, I can't leave here without saying my favorite is a 1.75

I should have added the 8 oz. bottle to go along with my 1 lb, maybe next year, but I would offer a 2 or 3 lb. bottle for the folks who use alot of honey and want a little better price on quantity. John

Variety is the secret to selling a lot of honey. Different sizes. Different colors of honey. Creamed honey. Comb honey. Chunk honey. Other bee products like propolis or pollen. There is no "best size". The best size is variety. I also like to have the plain bottles and the fancy bottles.

This year I've been offering pints 1.5#), quarts (3#), and 12 oz. bear squeeze bottles. And the quarts outsell everything else going away.
Regards,
Steven

Thanks for the replies. I went with 12 oz, 1lb flip top and 1lb inverted. I am planing on adding more in the future to see what ppl here like.
