    See on the Honey Board that bulk honey is around $2.60 a lb. So what do you people sell your honey for a pound? We have a few customers that buy in gallons but do alot in honey bears and small bottles that are about 1# each. Glass jars are out of sight(and few every return them) so do most in the PETE plastic jars that show off the honey so well. DEE

    At the local farmers markets here honey is selling for $3.00 a pound by most sellers. Many of the sellers are not beekeepers but buy from beekeepers for as low as $1.00 a pound up to $2.40 a pound.
    The road side beekeepers are getting $3.00 a pound and 3 pound rounds are the most popular.

    Depending on where we get ours, it's $6 to $8 a quart here in WI. They come in a quart canning jar, which I prefer because I can reuse it.

    2 pints to a guart. A quart is about 3 pounds depending on the jar. Metric sized jars are a bit bigger than a quart.
