Whats the going prices for your table grade honey  huh Quarts and Pints.  Here in North Carolina this season the honey in my area is really light color this season. Last season we got 16$ for a quart for the poplar honey which is dark amber.

I have been getting $8.00 per pint this year. My first harvest was 40% clover, 40% blackberry, and 20% wildflower. It is very light and tasty. Sales have been good so far.

How can you be so sure of those percentages?

Nothing is exact. 40% came from supers where the hives were located on located 300 acres of clover, 40% of the supers harvested were from hives on a u-pick blackberry farm, and 20% of the supers harvested were just whatever was blooming in the area.

When it is sold, it is just honey. If the customer asks, the above is what I tell them.  I am not that sure but that's my story and I am sticking to it.

Good to know.  All the places that I have my hives have such an abundance of different thing around them that I could never guess what they might be getting into.
