All the previous advice is great. Read it. Use it. If you want to do this as a side-line, supplemental income, it's still all to the good. If you want to keep bees as a full-time agri-business, you definitely need to do your research, as suggested. Also note you will probably not be able to get any sort of business loan or grant for this.
Let's work the numbers, shall we? Let's ignore pollination contracts, because not all of us can have them (there's no notable market for pollination except in the contiguous 48 states). We'll assume that you get an average harvest of, say, 100 pounds of honey and five pounds of wax per hive (not unreasonable, but perhaps a little high. Anyway, they're nice, round numbers.) Let's also assume honey and wax prices stay steady at $2.00/lb and $4.00/lb respectively. Note that this is an awful lot of assuming, here.
Using those numbers, we can reasonably expect, in an average year, about $220 per hive. So, to gross just over $10k, you need to have about 50 hives.
Sort of. First-year hives output, essentially, zero. Expect 20% hive-loss, annually, assuming you don't get struck by CCD. So, you need closer to 60 hives to gross that same $10k. For each $10k you want, double that number of hives.
If you are building your numbers, you are probably not getting a harvest of any notable size. This, of course, depends on how aggressively you're expanding. Example: my initial plan was to start with 15 hives and expand to about 500 in five years. That's pretty aggressive. I like that plan and will probably stick pretty close. I don't expect a harvest of any size until year FOUR. That means three to four years of effectively ZERO income from my apiaries.
Now, factor in your expenses. Fuel, maintenance and repairs for your truck, forklifts, etc. Feed: sugar or corn syrup, honey (feeding back some of your hard-earned crop?), pollen supplements, medications, etc. Woodenware can be built or purchased; in the end it costs about the same to build as to buy. Packages and queens. BeeQuick or whatever you use on your fume-boards. Day-labor costs for those days you need an assistant. None of these are equity expenses. Yes, I know you could consider the woodenware and bees, themselves, as equity expenses but they are so short-term that is better to consider to them as expendables, like fuel, feed and medications. None of these can be readily predicted with any certainty. Still, it's probably safe to assume that numbers-building years will consume approximately 150% of your otherwise-expected gross (remember, building years will generate no actual income, so this is 100% outlay). Once established, you are probably safe expecting these numbers to be in the range of 35-50% of your gross.
More expenses: Bee suits, hive tools, smokers, trucks, forklifts, extractors, settling tanks, filters, bottlers, packaging, labels, etc. These can get really expensive, fast. BUT these are equity costs. These are items you should expect a very long life out of. If you buy the big-ticket items used, you can keep these costs down below $10k pretty easily, but you'll wind up spending more, in the long run, on maintenance and repair.
So, the reality is: Just like any traditional soil-based agri-business, you should probably not expect any kind of profit for 10-15 years. Which means, you need to think big and you need to plan long-term. You need to be thinking at least five years ahead and probably keep loose plans out to 20 years.
