To bee a Business or not to Bee! That is the question!

A new year a new descision to ponder!
This year I am considering on moving from a hobby to a business. I am considering opening up a beekeeper supply store as well to sell some wooden ware and also bee products (Honey, candles, etc.). I don't want a great deal of inventory, but I am trying to fill a small niche. It would be beneficial to local beeks since they would not be paying the shipping that they normally have to. I am waiting to here from some local beeks to see if there is enough interest in buying local or not before I make a descision. I also have to talk to my CFO(Wife) and Tax man yet. More to come as I find out!

I am also planning on selling nucleous hives this year. My plan is to have about 8 nucs for sale in mid-May and another 8 in Mid-June. Not many, but enough to make ends meet for now!
I will post more later as I see the progress of the hives I will be making nucs out of!

Would really like to get my mits on a 6&1/4 frame nuc observation hive so I could support it with my garden hives. Any chance you're still making these? If so, would I'll buy one if you're selling. Les Pratt, Kathleen, GA 478 988 5481
