I charge £5.00 for 12oz at farmers' market.
You might expect to pay £3.95 ish per Lb for honey in bulk 30Lb buckets.

I have been quoted £3.40 for a half pound jar, which is there wholesale price. With a recommended retail price of £4.75, that would make it £9.50 a lb! Which i think is a bit steep, and would never sell in my shop.

You could pop an ad in the for sale/wanted section and also google beekeeping associations local to you to ask there.

I was hoping to be more local than lithuania
Well, I understand you pretty well, however, you could try some Lithuanian honey as well. It's raw, polyfloral and 100 percent natural. It could be delivered to you at no additional cost if you were interested.

Have you tried Tony Manton (Brackley Bees)? He would give you a competitive price and reliable regular supply of quality local honey.

a few more than last year but still not enough
ours retails at over £5.50 for 340g. but was in minehead today and in the Exmoor producers shop and was shocked that they are retailing for less than I charge wholesale.

no wonder people make no profit.
