Half the people I deal with think it should be free the other half think you should pay them for the honey.
Yes, I get that sometimes. You should do the work just for the value of the bees! HA!
My favorite is the people who show up when you're doing a cut-out wanting to know about the honey. Their eyes gleam at the thought of ALL that golden honey and seem to think it's just like the jar in the store. If I give them some honey, it's going to have some bees in it, as well.
I feed the cut-out honey to the bees.
