Looking for advice for another beekeeper. This is not myself or a family member. He asked me what I would do in his situation and I have told him my observations and suggestions. Looking for advice from those of you in this business over 20 years and have bought out other operations over the course of their career.
Kept bees about 4 years and is looking to buy out his "boss" who has a 200 hive operation in the Rocky Mountain area of the US.
Boss says he wants to "sell out" but won't come up with a specific date or price structure for the transfer. Date keeps moving as does estimated purchase price.
The "apprentice" does most of the work. Boss is willing to pay less than $8 per hour for the work done.
Operation garnered about a 100 lb average last year on 100 hives. +-
what should he do?
Stick around for more Experience?
