    I'm just a hobbyist but I could see a problem if I had enough money and time. But if your retired and have nothing but time and money then yeah, thats what I would do with it. Its and addiction.

    It looks to me like there are around 600 hives in there with stands for 150 more. That might keep you a little busy at times.
    Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.

    With that set up, what would he be selling more of.... bees and queens or honey? Or both?
    The back hives would have to be worked from the front of the hives.
    Can you imagine what the front of those leanto's look like when the bees are in full production mode! lol

    I'm guessing that this is just a winter location. I can't imagine that there is enough nectar available in any one location to support that many colonies.
    Like us on facebook This is the place to bee!

    Can you imagine what they look like when it is time for all those hives to have orientation flights going on? -js
