Being a total newbee here , forgive me if this is question doesnt sound so "informed" . I have read that raw honey , which I assume most of you are talking about selling , crystalizes much faster than the processed honey . For that reason would it be better to sell more small sized containers that would turn over faster ? I would think that the customer would look at a jar of recently purchased honey that starts to crystalize before its used in a timely manner as an inferior product . Thoughts?

If my bee's can survive me , Varroa doesn't stand a chance !!!

Here in Central Arkansas I sell mostly 1 and 2 pound jars.
I usually give the owners of the beeyards a couple of gallons.
I have 2 registered beeyards that are Red, white and yellow clover with lots of blackberry and wild cherry and plum trees.

There are different things that make it crystallize, Jim81147.  Like the flowers they are getting nectar from, some doesn't and some will crystallize fast.  It is not inferior.  I extract, then run it though a paint strainer and bottle and label it raw pure wild flower honey.  I do tell people that it will crystallize in a few months and just to heat in a double boiler and it will be liquid again.  The only bad question is the one not asked.  I like the crystallized honey, one of these days I want to make some creamed honey.  Crystallized honey does't drip off of our sandwich. ha
