what equipment would buy if u had to do it over again? i am looking to expand my honey operation and looking for the most time effective equipment out there.
If you are considering maximizing your efforts for maximum honey production then go with all deeps. Go with cypress woodenware. Place all your hives on trailers or pallets. If you can afford it one of those hive moving bobcats.
I like my 20 frame Maxant extractor.
Warehouse to place woodenware and other equipment.
Build you a honey house and keep it heated to at least 75F year round.
Build you another house or walk in cooler to store extracted and full honey frames for feed.
I could go on and on but the message is clear, acquire all the amenities you can for ease of use and maximum production.
Oh, and don't forget that bee keeping is a form of agriculture dependent on many variables, mostly weather related. There will be good years, poor years, great years and terrible ones.
You asked! :-D
