Hello, Everyone and thank you for taking the time to read this. I am looking in to ways to support my large family from home so I dove right in to farming. We are just starting out and have nothing really going good yet, but have to start some where right so now we have 2 goats 3 rabbits i went over board and 172 chicks and 37 ducklings so the start of a lot, but not anything going yet. Also a garden with tomato, okra, peppers, squash, carrots, onions, watermelon, and beans. So we have 12 acres of land and would like to get honey as it cost so much at the store and we love it to sweeten tea but with 3 little boys my husband and cousin all living under one roof sugar goes fast and so does honey. I am looking for a way to make around 10 cups of honey a week that is a lot i think so I am here for advise. So far all I have done toward this project is watch some youtube videos, read some blogs, and priced hives. But i don't know how many hives I will need where to get bees (Texas) and if anything I already have will negatively effect the bees. In the spring there are always so many honey bees outside you cant carry a soda in the yard with out them flying all over you. Can I use these for my hive.
