Selling Honey and other stuff

It was a good season for honey this year. We are currently selling several sizes.
1/2 lb jars $6 (sold out)
1/2 lb decorated gift jars $10 (sold out)
1 lb round jars $10
2 lb Classic jars $20
2-1/2 lb square jars $24
All of our jars are glass. Some of the honey is crystallized partly or fully. The beauty of the glass jars is that you can warm them in a pan of water if you want to re-liquefy the honey. Many people preferred crystallized or creamed honey, so it’s nice to give them a choice. If you’d like to pick some up, give a call at 413-663-9288.

We’ve done several craft fairs and have re-incarnated some of the items I used to make when I sold wooden crafts, years ago. We feel that the combination works well. Some people are drawn to our booth by the games and toys, and then ask questions about bees and honey and make a purchase. For others, they see the candle and honey display and also pick up a ball and cup game or other wooden item. And I feel good getting into the wood shop again.

About Beekeeping in the Berkshires

Here at Berkshire Farms Apiary we've been keeping bees and making honey since 2005, with hives in most of the surrounding towns. We also make pure beeswax candles, lip balm, and hand salve, as well as give presentations. As secretary of the Northern Berkshire Beekeepers Association, I am very active in the local beekeeping community.
