Re: If you had a 20 acre pasture to dedicate to your bees...
I would plant and maintain the highest quality hay possible, sell it, and use the profit, if any, to fund my beekeeping. I bet you can find a horse farm nearby that would buy good horse hay from you.

Unless you don't need to be concerned about this, maintaining bee feed land is not profitable, not moneteraly so. Maybe you can afford other forms of profit. In which case, I take that as a sign that our economy is improving.
