What kind of production increase would be typical on a farm that was commercially producing veggies and fruit when you stuck the right number of bees on it?? I have a 200 acre farm that a guy runs and is wanting to have bees on, what number of hives would be enough and what do you guys think. I have moved from my country setting to the city and need a place to put some hives and such, but his farm would take a while to get to. (about an hour). Sounds like fun to me, especially since he will pay for it I am sure, but what do you guys think? Anyone do anything like this before? I am not commercially set up or anything, just a hobby type of thing, and I am still very new to this sooooo... give me some feedback.
