The National Honey Board reports that a pound of honey now costs $5.22, up from $3.78 in 2005.I remember picking up my first five-gallon, 60-pound bucket of wildflower honey from an apiary in 1994 or so for about $50. Same thing from the same apiary today: $240. Heather honey from Scotland, arguably the "champagne" of honeys for fermentation, used to be £5.00 a pound in bulk years ago, and oddly the prices in Europe have held steady by comparison with here.
