Let them pack sand
Or import honey
Sell as much of your crop retail and local as you can.
I remember milk being dumped or fed to hogs to keep prices up in an
oversupply.
This for me is a hobby and even though I harvested a little over a ton this
year a gallon jug is about as close to wholesale as I care to sell.
I am getting  8-9$ a quart in mason jars for raw honey with no heat used in
the processing including uncapping with a fork.
Nothing fancy involved here- all wildflower harvested late spring midsummer
and fall and kept seperate.
 
Tom in CT who feels strongly that his honey is no commodity.
