Thanks Paul, it is going almost too well to spend time online!

A friend ought all of Yaroslav's hives, and the prices above are no longer current.

You can see some of my posts on my website http://biologiccambodia.com

Looks like most of the materials are here. That is to build yourself Paul.

I would rather buy hives, than to build them.

This is understandable James. With taking care of your hives and bee population, preparing and running courses, your website and correspondent input. And also the daily tasks of life.

Please may I ask a few questions? How many working hours per day are involved with bee keeping. I understand this maybe variable with the amount of hives someone would have. How long before the hive is full of honey. Again I suppose it may depend on area, and how active the bee's are.

Then because this is an active business, and not just a hobby. How is your end product marketed. When you are in full production would you be able to sell honey to stores around Cambodia. And is there any interest in the export market.
