Where can I sell my cleaned and filtered beeswax?

That's the question.  I've got about 100 pounds over the past two seasons.

Most of the big suppliers (Dadant i.e.) will buy your wax for around $2.00/lb.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

We here give order to make  foundations from  raw wax. If you do not need them all, sell foundations.

What is your foundation price and what is the cost to manufacture them?

Here raw wax is almost invaluable.

deal with any of the bee supply companies, they take wax on trade against anything you need to buy, good way to get a deal on new equipment.
THAT's ME TO THE LEFT JUST 5 YEARS FROM NOW!!!!!!!!

Never be afraid to try something new.
