    I want to help in a different way. I live in the Philippines and getting my hands on real honey is nearly impossible. I'm not alone. Philippines is a achapelos of 7,000 islands and over 2,000,000 westerners (mainly Americans) and we have the hardest time trying to get Raw Honey. The few stores that will have it only have a few on the shelves and it's gone in a day then we have to wait for months before we can a chance to get it. Mind you these stores are in the greater Metro areas so since most of us live on smaller islands we don't have a chance. My hope is that one of the newly entrepreneurs will be willing to sell and ship abroad? I would be happy if someone could loop into setting up a shipping system with me... I'm buying and for a hobby I will distribute. I already have a ham and bacon curing system set up for us here.. Please inbox me
