Making Money from Honey – Sunday Nov. 5th

This workshop is best suited for people who have been keeping bees for a few years and are planning to turn a hobby into a sideline or a sideline into a business. But every year, attendees also include non-beekeepers who are considering starting and are wondering about beekeeping profitability and are looking for ideas to get moving towards a second career or a retirement income.

Neil and Ron are offering their ‘Making Money from Honey‘ course in Edmonton this fall on Sunday, November 5

Neil Bertram and Ron Miksha have been working bees for decades. Between them, they have experience in hobby and commercial beekeeping, queen rearing, pollination, and production of a few million pounds of honey.

This overview of beekeeping economics is an all-day program.
Here are some of the topics which will be covered:
– growing from backyard/hobby beekeeper 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.
