Anyone know of a good reference for how to properly account for a beekeeping operation? I have an ok knowledge of small business/non-profit bookkeeping but the agricultural aspects are new to me. For example: Is a colony of bees valued separately from the wooden ware in which they reside? And what sort of an asset are they? (aside from fragile!) Are replacement queens expensed or added to the basis of the colony? How do you account for a replacement queen killed in the cage?
Many Thanks in advance.
