I bought a place out in the country and have been planting several fruit trees as well as getting a big garden started. Right now my neighbor has bees that come down and pollinate my trees. I would like to get a couple hives started myself. How expensive is it to get started keeping bees? I could probably get my neighbor to bring a couple hives over and just let him keep them on my property if I wanted to. I was wondering if it would be worth the effort to try to keep some myself. I am only out there on the weekends if that makes any difference so there would not be someone there all the time.
