Our experience has shown that the best way to start Bees for business is to start with 25 hives as this should pay for itself in a season.
The 25 working hives should return about one ton of honey. On average a jar of honey sells for around £3.20 a pound. As there is 2240lbs in a ton, that’s £7168.0 per season plus you will have the bees ready for next year as long as they have been managed well.
The hive consist of a brand-new B.S.National brood box with a family of Carniolan bees on new hoffman frames, which have a new floor,new frame feeder and new roof. All our frames, hives, wax, bees and queens will be brand new overwintered. Everything will have a Ministry certificate of heath giving you a guaranteed treated disease start.
