Re: New to the beebiz
You have to realize these are the guys who have made it BIG and have had to work through the aches and pains of growing a business. Any business is a challenge to start up, but especially farming, and Keeping Bees is farming...
On the brighter side of the Bee Planet, there are so may aspects you can focus on. One advantage you will have is your Trucking Co. Become a passionate Bee Keeper and learn to really care about the Bees health during transportation, sell that to your customers and you will be the Bee driver! But here is a list of opportunities you can focus on, pick one or pick a few:
Producing and selling Honey
Raising and selling Bees (Nucs, Hives, or Packages)
Raising and selling Queens
Retail Bee Equipment Sales
Specialized Bee Transportation Business
Education, offer classes to the public
This is just what is on the surface, there are specialties you can start, such as manufacturing wooden ware, or bee supplements, get creative. The sky is the limit. Look at Keith Jarrett going from three to two thousand hives plus sells Nutra-Bee!
Just Do It!
best of luck in your endeavor! And welcome to BeeSource...
