    I'm to big to be a hobbies't and to small to be commercial. It's not what I have spent that bothers me but what it is costing to finish the jump.

    Hi Glock,
    We are very similar, without doing the math almost the same. I don't have any bear fences, but do have Maxant extractor.
    I like you're style.

    I would say at this point in time that I have 0$ in my beekeeping. Entering 10th year of beekeeping and I am fairly certain(I didn't start keeping good records of income and expenses until last 3 years or so) I have made more $$ on honey sales and bee sales that I am at a break even or profit (Don't tell the IRS) LOL I have grown slowly thru splits, swarms, and cut outs. At this point in time something doesn't get purchased for the bees unless they pay for it. I am attempting to put this same philosophy to work with my chickens, but I haven't found enough customers for the eggs yet
