Logistics/practicality of going to SD for honey production

3109 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Ian
I had said previously that I have family in SD w/ a huge farm. Is it possible to go to SD from E. TX w/ 40-50 hives and make a profit on honey? What is the average number of pounds per hive of surplus in this area of the state -

I understand this is probably a stupid question, just looking at options for next year.

Thanks for all the tips y'all have given me, beesource has changed the way I keep bees.

>>Landowner-beekeepers are also exempt from the 3-mile requirement, although they must still register their hives with the Agriculture Department.

Ya, I was wondering about that. Land owner rights trump SD registration by law
