I have an opportunity to rent acreage and am looking at planting 10 acres of Sainfoin and 10 acres of white/yellow clover over a 5 year contract.
Are there commercial beeks who plant their own acreage to ensure a good Honey crop?
In regards to honey production, how many hives would this amount of acreage support.
My goal is for the hive to make 60 - 80 pounds of marketable honey as we seem to get alot of cloudy and or rainy days in Central PA.
I am trying to calculate the feasibility of doing this as my goal is for the bees to make a profit.
