Anybody make honey in case of a SHTF scenario?
Wife and I have tried to be self sufficient. We grow much of our own food. Wife and I are mostly vegetarians (fish also). We have a generator at one house in NH and putting one in our house in TX. Firearms and ammo are stock piled as well as a good supply of emergencey food and medical supplies. (she is a nurse and use to be a medic, I have a lot or trauma training.).
We feel we are missing something....Bee Hives!! Honey almost never goes bad, we need bees around for our farm/garden. So why not get into bee keeping and producing our own honey.
Anybody out there do that and is it worthwhile. Sites I looked at said it costs about 500 to 800 bucks to get started. How much money can you expect? I have been looking at prices at this site:
