I'm also currently wondering whether its worth harvesting this season .. working out the figures for bulk extraction and bottling I'd have trouble selling .. AT COST - just to break even.that is a very serious issue for beeks.
there is absolutely no point of taking a crop if you can't sell it.
we have the same issue, our bulk pasture honey is simply not worth taking off the hives.
And then have to feed the bees too.
Been scratching my head for weeks now trying to decide how to proceed.
Do I keep shopping around for a better solution... like extracting and bottling it myself to keep costs down [but this seems very complicated]
new at this.. appreciate any suggestions..
hm maybe this need to be on a separate thread
