If you are going to buy the bees, raise the bees, keep the bees healthy, and harvest the honey the bees make, you are going to want the perfect container in which to put that honey! We offer a variety of glass jars and plastic containers, so you are sure to find the size and shape that's perfect for you. We also sell extra lids for those of you who like to recycle your containers. By law, honey is sold by weight, not volume. All of our containers show the weight of honey, which is not equivalent to liquid volume. Therefore, our 12-ounce containers hold 12 ounces of honey, but only 8 ounces of water.
