hi, this spring im going to be selling my honey, how much money I charge for a bottle,? what is usual, the same as what I seen at giant, ? and when i was doing an inspectin last week it was real cold (today is super warm I wore a tshirt even) but I still saw they are making honey from all that sugar I was dumping in.I think I can start bottling it up soon for sale, I guess I still feed them sugar anyway to keep it going
keep on keeping on! , bill

I don't suggest you try selling your sugar syrup as "honey" that's the kinda thing that will pose people off. I know you're probably new and don't know so I'm not trying to give you carp just let you know. You can't feed sugar when they're making honey or it will contaminate it.

Agree with VT BG, you shouldn’t sell sugar syrup as honey. Just don’t.
It will wreck the reputation of local honey producers, and it is way up on the unethical scale.
Sugar syrup is bee food, not ‘honey’. If you want to consume it personally, no foul, but selling as honey is a sham.
I would advise you to re-think this.

that isn't honey, it's the equivalent corn syrup.

The best advice I can give you is you need to read a few bee books , attend bee club meetings, watch a few videos, get a mentor and ask questions on this site before you sell anything to the public .
