Interesting Opportunity
« on: March 24, 2011, 01:24:11 PM »
I was bumming around ebay last night looking at what beekeeping equipment was available and stumbled across an interesting opportunity.  There is a guy selling his whole company and I thought someone here might actually be interested in such a venture.  I thought about it for a second and then I realized there was no way in heck that my wife would actually try something like that.  Here is the item # (180640970882) for anyone interested.

Sounds like he's not only selling his company, but moving, too?  So you actually just drive down and take over the operation (after paying first)?  Somebody out there is going to go for the adventure, I'm sure!

Not for me, though.  I'm finding that baby steps are working much better for me with my bees! Looks like fun, though!

yeah, he is retiring and would be available to consult.  He's trying to sell the company and all assets as a turnkey operation.

There are a lot of bee operations that go up for sell in one form or another in the back of the bee mags.

Darn, I just missed out.  I would have written that check instantly.... I hoped he wouldn't cash it for say... 50 years or so. :-P
