Making Money from Honey
– a beekeeping course taught by Neil Bertram and Ron Miksha

Beekeeping can be fun and profitable.”

Making Money from Honey, Fall 2016,  is scheduled for Saturday, November 19. Aspiring participants may contact either of the instructors to reserve a spot in workshop.  It’s a one-day program that will help you earn a little extra cash, design plans for your beekeeping future, and avoid costly mistakes – while enjoying the hobby/business of beekeeping.

Our April offering sold out quickly and had great positive feedback from participants. We have refined the course (just a little) for the November program. If you can make it, just bring a pen and notepad and a keen mind. You’ll really need that keen brain because the amount of material we cover in about seven hours is almost overwhelming!

Here are some of our topics:
– growing from backyard hobby to sideliner to commercial;
– equipment choices and shop/honey house considerations;
– finances, projections, expectations, difficulties, setbacks, and success;
– how much money to expect from bees in a typical year;
– handling and marketing your products;
– case histories of good and bad beekeeping businesses;
– the beekeeper personality and lifestyle.

How do people make money keeping bees?
