Needing advice and some good reads or listening material to determine if I should take the plunge
So some context, I grew up on a farm and plan on returning in a couple years to take over. We have always had bees on our property and in the past few years have been selling the honey along with our produce. Unfortunately the current bee keeper that has hives on our property has decided to relocate and will more than likely not leave any hives. With this we are considering getting our own hives and produce the honey ourselves. We grow mostly vegetables and hay but we also do cover crops with some being specific to pollinators, there is also a lot of fruit production in the area. I really need to make the right decision on this as I don’t want to put in the time and effort in starting just to lose the hives. What are some good sources to start doing research on either in books, podcasts, videos that this community can recommend? I am working through the extension service next door to our property but I currently do not live in the area so I want to research as much as I can before I go to far. Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
