Re: Treatment Free Commercial Beekeepers?
....except that Dean's customers expect some degree of "sustainability" however you want to define it.
The main advantage of running our own business is that we don't have to subscribe to or market based on someone else's criteria.
Touting ron's approach as "treatment free beekeeping" is like touting the maintenance department of a car rental agency for the high quality and reliability of their fleet. The fact that the cars are new and are replaced when they exhibit problems makes the claim that they are "well maintained" rather meaningless.
The irony is free. It's the sarcasm you are paying for....ironically.
