My club just paid $95 per 60lbs for Basswood at the local apiary but we also picked up 240 pounds and used our own buckets.

The lowest price I've paid is 15$ for five lbs.
I received 6 lbs last Christmas. It came from GFS. When I opened it up, I had my reservations, but I used it anyway. Now I have a gallon of bad mead that I'm REALLY hoping improves with age, and another 3 lbs I need to figure out what to do with so that it isn't crap.

I emailed the closest place around here, and got this response:

Quote:
8 oz.—$5.15, 12 oz.—$7.60, 24 oz.—$14.90, 40 oz.—$22.15, I only do 6# units on request, they sell for $48.90.
Ouch!

He didn't specify what kind of honey it was, besides raw and unfiltered.

Damn....You could order from online Brew stores and pay shipping for that kind of price.

I paid $32 for a 12# (Gallon) jug of Colorado Raspberry honey at the NSLHBS

No joke. I told him I could get 12# of basswood, CA orange blossom, or white sage honey, shipped, from NB for $43 (wildflower shipped for $38). I told him I wanted to go local but getting half as much for $15 more isn't worth it. Maybe he'll cut me some kind of deal, maybe not.
