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.
mmm, nice hobby you have there, i see you love bees, =)
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
