I have been excited about the Flow-Hive since I heard about it. I am not a Bee keeper and about to retire. I like honey, who doesn’t, and thought it might be nice to have some Bees and make some free honey. It might also be a good hobby in retirement. After further review and realizing that the start up is going to be $600 no matter how I slice it I came up with this question.
Would I be better off just buying $600 (US) worth of honey in 5 gallon buckets? They are priced from under $30 (US) and up. At $30 I could buy 20 each of 5 gallon buckets of honey, that is 100 gallons. Since I use about 2 gallons per year that is 50 years worth of honey.
What say you Bee keepers out there?
