Setting up a barter network is a fantastic idea. I have some friends who have already established a mini-barter network of sorts, and are always interested in more goods/products/services. If anyone's interested, let me know.

The beekeepers club is a great resource... unfortunately, many apiaries don't provide the real high-quality raw honey (with the honeycomb, bee pollen, propolis, etc). Many offer watered-down honey, so you really have to do your research.

Then there's this:

Beekeeping Practices are Killing Honeybees, Part I

Beekeeping Practices are Killing Honeybees, Part II

I've never actually participated in any events with this club (but I do read the emails from time to time)...

i'm glad you posed that question . it reminded me that there is a long island beekeepers club. they have a classified section right on their website i just found...

check this site,
http://www.longislandbeekeepers.org/

this is great , as i've been wanting to find a local source for raw honey.
i currently buy in bulk with our baldwin rawfoods coop,from honey gardens in vermont

i also use pure beeswax in my woodworking finish recipes for native flutes ,salad bowls and goblets etc. ive gotten that in bulk from ebay, but a local/ethical apiary would be MUCH better.

i? love bartering as well. another item i make is candle holders from reclaimed trees/branches,? what are you interested in bartering?

Namaste'
