    Default Working for a beekeeper

    Hi guys I have a quick question. Every month I look in the back of the ABJ and see beekeepers hireing help. Some
    are looking for seasonal or full time. What do you think a job like that pays?
    Thanks

    The least the beekeeper can get away with.

    I would inquire with ads, you may be suprised. There are many large beekeepers that pay well. ie foreman making 50 to 75k.
    Out in Ca wages are a little higher we start @ 10.00 going upto $18. now in Idaho & utah its 8 to 13 an hr.

    Just remember if you have a back problem or a week one better build yourself up. It is hard work your not just working with 20 hives a day fast pace and hard work. Easier said than done. Sure some folks on this site can vouch for that. California 75k ain't that much lived and worked there for a yr in 1999. Beautiful state and so much to do you will never get bored. If your young go for it live life while your young .When you get older it doesn't have that same appeal.
