Re: I would like to be a commercial beek
Expenses hedges. What about the expenses?
What does it cost to maintain a viable hive of bees? Maybe some of the Commercial Beekeepers can tell us? I have never tried to figure that out in my own operation, but a friend of mine w/ 7 times the number I have says it's something like $175.00 annually. So, even before you can imagine making a Profit your hive has to more than pay for itself.
There's a lot more to doing commercial beekeeping than most people can imagine, let alone know.
