    I was just checking this site out - www.bmorehone.org, and I wondered if there were any other honey CSAs out there. They're a not for profit organization, and supposedly a portion of the members' dues go to support the apiary enhancement fund (which directly funds the salaries of the apiary inspectors here in Md.). But $45 (1 share) for 1 lb of honey seems a bit much. I'm thinking forget almonds come to Baltimore. :yahoo:

    I wonder how many subscribers they actually have? Yankee Magazine used to have an add for "Rent a Beehive" and "Rent a Lobster Pot". I thnk that they were a much better deal than bmorehone. Butr maybe you actually get more than just a pound of honey for your annual dues.

    I'm not aware of any CSA's.

    My guess is that they are really going for non profit status if they keep posting "organic" honey from the Baltimore area.

    No, you only receive 1 lb of honey per share. If you buy 5 shares, you'll also receive a honey pot. The honey is distributed in June/July, but in August you'll be able to purchase it in the Whole Foods around here (for a whole lot less I imagine). I'm only now beginning to realize what a deal Whole Foods is.

    Sounds like a rip off to me. How do I get in on it? :)
