Beekeeping is becoming more popular in Cambodia

Recommended Posts

In the past few months, one Ukrainian guy that I know of, and one Khmer fellow, have started beekeeping businesses. The Ukrainian guy is within two hours of Battambang. The Khmer fellow lives in Phnom Penh. 

 

I am really glad to see this happening. 

 

The Ukrainian fellow has whole frames of honey (3kg to 4kg), at $18 USD, each.

He also sells honey by the bottle, $10 USD.

He also sells nucs, hives, and bees.

Bee's are very cool unless you happen to be allergic to their venom, then not so much.

Hi guys, here is a little website on beekeeping I have just started.

Pretty comprehensive list of supplies, bees, and yes- we will be offering training soon with Yaroslav- pictured above - within weeks in fact.

I am going hell for leather to get it wrapped up so check out the "starting" link to see some of the pros and cons.

There is also a FB group

Why not! You have the land mass and expert advice from jimmyboy. For honey or explosive training :)

Actually, there are several guys who are getting into it, now. James has jumped in with both feet, and quite impressively, I may add. I was in hopes he would be a bit more active here, sharing some of his experience.
