I am hoping to harvest some comb honey in the near future and I am wondering what is the best size to cut it and how much should I charge for it

Any suggestions

What size?? Approx. 4 inches square "100mm X 100mm".

What price... All you can get. It varies with location, market, and variety of honey.

In central NY here, at least two different beekeepers are charging about $8-9 for a 3" x 3" piece of comb in a neat tidy box.
Needless to say, at that price they are not flying off the shelves. :shock:
It seems that's about twice the price of what I remember a couple of years ago.

I didn't sell all my comb honey at the farmers market this summer but it's flying out of the deep freeze now, i have a $60.00 order to take to the bee meeting tonight. My 16 oz. 4x4 in a clear clamshell box goes for $6.00 and the 8 oz. approx. 2 1/2 in. square goes for $3.00. Some days at the farmers market i would sell all i brought and other days i wouldn't sell but one or two packs,you can't out guess them. I still have people ask, what is that :confused: I thought maybe i was to cheap when i read on the forums what others were getting, but then i thought that's $6.00 a pound. :thumbsup: Jack

It never ceases to amaze me what people don't know.
I am used to people asking "What is that?" about my banjo when we play music in public, but the other day they asked my husband that about his fiddle. :shock: :confused: :confused: There are really people in America who don't recognize a violin. Would they know what a piano was if it fell on them? :(

Have you ever seen Jay Leno's "Jay Walking"? It makes you laugh and feel sad at the same time :cry: One time I saw a collage student majoring in history planning a career in teaching. She couldn't identify a picture of George Washington :eek: Her best guess was the Queen of England :queen:

Thanks for that info guys.

What about honey with some comb in it? What would you charge for say 1 kg of that?

Here in SW Mo. We know the differents between a violin and a fiddle by the way they transport them, they carry a violin in a case and a fiddle in a burlap feed bag. :mrgreen: Jack
