I am a newbie beek from Arkansas. I've been reading about beekeeping for about a year now and am ready to jump in. The knowledge on this site has been a huge help.
I have some friends that are going to teach me the ropes. I have found someone that needs to sell their already establised hives and I am going to purchase 8 of them. We have about 160 acres to set them on.
I am going to be getting:
1 bottom board
1 hive body
inner and outer lids
1 queen excluder
All for $150 each after the state inspector checks out the hives to make sure they are disease free.
Does this sound like a fair price?
