Beekeepers have different tastes in the honey containers they use.  What are you packaging your honey in?

When we buy it or get it from fellow bee keepers we buy it in what ever plastic or glass jar we like at the moment but I would say we use mostly plastic jars. bye :D

I can't remember how much the plastic jars cost, but it seems the reason I have gone with mason jars was because of cost. I need to look into it more though because I think I spent a ton of money on jars this last year. I bought just a few at a time (by the case), but in the end I think I bought 4 cases. I also used them for canning blackberries and peaches. I made my own labels on my computer, and then everything looked uniform even though the contents were different.

I guess this would fall into the "anything you can find" category...
