By July of 2012 I knew I would not be able to do business as usual.
In 2011, because of weather related events, California beekeepers had their
worst honey production in 40 or 50 years. Meeks' Honey has responded to this
lack of honey by trying to stay on the shelves with limited offerings.
I've discontinued quart jars for this year, have enough wildflower honey for the
pint jars, will keep orange and buckwheat in pint jars through the holidays, I hope.
The small amounts of varietals have gone into 1/2 pint jars, which hopefully will
stretch these flavors into 2013, but they will slowly disappear as I run out.
If 2013 is a good honey year, Meeks' Honey will return all products to the shelf.
Price increases are another fall out of low production, and I apologize for the
price increase during this time.
As valued customers I thought you deserved an explanation for the current
marketing choices I've made. I was not arbitrary about my decisions.
I'm simply trying to stay on the shelves in a way that offers interesting
flavors for as long as possible, keeps me a presence in the stores, and allows
me to earn enough that I will be here again next year. Thank you and please feel
free to ask me any questions.
