Is beekeeping an expensive hobby?
Question by R B: Is beekeeping an expensive hobby?
Answer by mariner31
We just started a hive last season after a poor walnut and apple crop !!
A basic beginners kit (everything but the bees) cost us just shy of $ 300, and the bees we got from a local keeper who’d removed a hive from a school yard for about $ 75.
An expensive START… but this year we look like we will have a high yield of fruit and nuts, as well as enough honey for Christmas gifts for everyone !! We figure it will pay for itself in 2 years.
GOOD LUCK !!
