Startup beekeeping equipment to loan

fraservalleyguyDecember 12, 2010

Anyone think its a good idea to offer to lend out beekeeping equipment and experience to help someone get started in beekeeping? The only startup cost would be getting the package of bees or nucs.

Last I checked they are about $100 per package and

they do survive more than one year.

I would like to offer this in exchange for half of the harvest.

Fraser Valley east of Vancouver BC is my location.

have a nice day

I'm not sure if anyone would go for this, you can always try.
You would be getting half of the harvest and not lifting one finger...not sure if anyone would go for it? Perhaps for one season but what's after?
Bees in your property?
