Dear VBA members,
The VBA Tunbridge Fair Committee is again soliciting honey (and other bee-related products) to be sold at Tunbridge.
This activity is the largest annual fund-raiser for the VBA. To make this process both fair and simple, we have a few guidelines for your submissions:
- You must be a current member of the VBA.
- Wherever possible your containers should be of standard commercial variety and sizes, such as Queenline jars, NOT Mason jars or the like.
- The name, address and contents weight must be shown on all containers.
- Write out the retail price which you want for each size container, and the VBA will subtract 40% from all products sold. Retail prices should be in dollars & increments of 25 cents, such as : $ 7.25, $7.50, $7.75. $8.00. You must submit an invoice with the number of containers you hope to sell.
The price you set is wholly at your discretion, but remember, this is the Tunbridge World's Fair, not a high-end grocery store.
An example from last year was that almost all one--pound jars were priced at $8.00 with VBA keeping $3.20 and the beekeeper receiving $4.80.
