It turns out that Honey is quite heavy so we've tried to make use of flat rate U.S. Post Office boxes for shipping our products. We can fit six jars into the medium flat rate box, and nine into the large flat rate box.
Including insurance these are much cheaper than using UPS, FedEx, or regular priority mail boxes which are charged by weight. However, you might notice that ordering one jar of honey has the same shipping charge as six jars. This is because we can fit one to six jars into the same box for the same price, so it makes sense for you to buy more than one jar at a time.
Since the boxes are large enough we can also fit in several smaller items such as lee's bees 'bee bar' without extra charge, so if you buy a jar or two of honey any extra 'light weight' items are included in the base flat rate for your order.
We think this shipping method will end up saving time and money for everyone -- you can order as much honey as you like and we won't have to weigh the boxes or look up the rate based on your location.
We've cut the orders off at 40 or so jars, so if you want to make a very large order please get in contact and we can discuss the best way to ship and negotiate on the price a bit :)
Thanks a lot & please get a hold of us if any issues arise

Q? Regarding your shipping information, are you referring to the 1 lb jar in the medium flat rate box or is it 8 oz jar?
A: Since we ship by volume (rather than weight) the smaller jars take up almost the same space as the larger jars, so all jars are counted as the same. If you want, just add whatever products you'd like and then go to checkout. Once you put your address into the checkout page the shipping will be calculated for you automatically. So you can see how much you'll be charged before you commit to buying.
Hope that helps and thanks for visiting!
