Logistics/practicality of going to SD for honey production

3110 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.

South Dakota like Montana is a closed state and you can only put bees on registered locations 3 miles from any other beekeepers registered locations. South Dakota like Montana takes this very seriously and even arrests people for violating this law. First try and register the location and go from there.
