Years back, I approached a few stores about putting chunk honey on their shelves. And even though I said if it did not sell, I would take them back, and they could pay me for the ones that did sell....the answer was not always as positive as I thought it would be.

A few years later, and what is my most in-demand honey product? Yep, chunk honey.

I never liked doing rounds or comb honey. But I do put out some new comb every year on some strong hives, and cut it up into chunks and fill the jar with honey around the chunks.

For those who don't think they want to do comb honey, this is much easier, sells just as fast, and sells at a premium.

Here is a picture....

Yes indeed! Check the country of origin. I heard at my local beekeeping meeting that honey from China has been found to contain all matter of things you don't want.

Most sales I have for Chunk honey has been from elders that come to the farmers market. I put my cut chunks tall wise in the jar, and always use very LIGHT honey in the comb and for the liquid filler. Looks pretty, like art work in the jar.
