First off, for any one wondering I have 275ish hives with 4 years experience with bees. Also, have taken multiple bee classes at cal poly and have continued to work with the prior instructor helping with his queen breeding operation.
So I am putting together a business plan to run a 1500 colony operation as part of my senior project requirement to graduate at Cal Poly. After submitting my draft my advisor thinks my numbers are way off and running a commercial operation cant be that profitable. Attached are my financial statements I constructed. **I am not paying for land or rent due to the fact the whole operation is on our family ranch** Also, I still need to factor in fuel and labor cost. But other than that, what recommendations or comments do you have?
Also, it would be greatly appreciated if you could chime in on how your operation is and what your revenues are like!
