Did you know one small hive can keep your family supplied in honey all year long?
There has not been any other project on our homestead that has given us as much satisfaction as our bee hives. We easily pull over 30 pounds of honey off our two hives each year.
If you are just starting off homesteading, I would suggest you look into beekeeping as one of your first projects. The start-up is a bit costly but once established they require little attention and little feeding to carry them through the winter months.
