Piedmont honey prices

How much are you beekeepers getting for 8oz bears of pure honey, pint of pure honey, or a quart of honey?

curious is I am under priced.

Let us not run afoul of the Sherman or Clayton Antitrust Acts. Set your prices based on good old supply and demand in your area. If you look in our posts under "Products of the Hive," you will see a fairly recent discussion on what some folks are doing and what some folks have observed. Prices vary from person to person, but you can get an idea of ranges from the posts. If you subscribe to the American Bee Journal, you will also see quite a range of prices for various quantities of honey in the mid-Atlantic region.

Kurt, I sold out of my 8oz jars at $5 per. Based on the demand I could have gotten more, but I have a loyal group of clients and I was still making a small profit.

Awesome!
A great price for a great product. I remember not that long ago when a pint was going for $5.
