i have a friend that wants to buy a hive but wants me to get it all ready and take care of it and harvest the honey in the fall for him, of course this includes putting the supers & frames together, buying & hiving the pkg of bees, medicating them, etc, etc. He gets to write it all off on his taxes if i give him a receipt, he's a farmer. My question is... how much do i charge. So far i've charged him $250.00 pretty much for 3# pkg bees ($67.00) and the hive parts, also i used my drawn-out comb that i could've used for my own bee pkgs that i hived. ANY suggestions would be great, i don't want to get jipped nor do i want to jip him, but at the same time...time is money.
