Frequently Asked Questions


Can I Join?

I would like to become a member of the National Honey Board. How do I join?

Because the NHB is an instrumentality of the USDA, there are really no “members,” “dues” or “joining” the National Honey Board. The Board's work is funded by an assessment of one cent per pound on domestic and imported honey.

Honey From the NHB?

I would like to buy some of your honey.

The National Honey Board does not buy or sell honey. We are an industry-funded agriculture promotion group that works to educate consumers about the benefits and uses for honey and honey products through research, marketing and promotional programs. 

However, we do provide the option to purchase honey, as well as sell honey in our Honey Locator.  The Honey Locator is a valuable search tool that helps people find suppliers to purchase honey from. The website includes ways to search for specific honey varietals, as well as different forms of honey, like comb honey or whipped honey. Honey purchasers can also search for honey from a particular location (such as their home state), and for other goods and services offered by honey producers, packers and importers.
