I know that there are a lot of variables with this question, but....
I am trying to figure out how much money I could expect to make with only 30-40 hives. I'm in Idaho and have only been working with bee's for 1 1/2 years, so I figure the honey production on the lower end. No 150# hives here.
Does $5,000+ seem reasonable? If I have 35 hives that average 40 pounds and I get $5 for a pound, I should get $7k before expenses, right? Is there anything wrong with this?
