As commercial beekeepers, how much does each hive cost you to maintain? How much income per hive do you need to maintain each hive?
I hope I'm asking this in the right way. It's an interesting idea to ponder. I wonder if very many of us has an idea of what the real answer is. I'm sure that it will be different for each individual operation. This is something that a friend of mine asked me the other day while we were taking his honey off. Things sure look different when you work w/ another beekeeper. Not to mention another geographical location.
