How to go about starting a beekeeping farm?

What school is involved and what are the necessary steps to becoming a bee farmer?

What is needed to began and proceed?

Thank you

Hard Knocks and disappointment. You need to start out with at lest one hive. You've got a brood box with a floor and this is where the queen stays and lays her eggs. The brooder box is where all the bees live. It should be a large super. Then there is the queen excluder and atop of this I would use a shallow super. You can add as your hive grows. Bee keeping is one of the most important jobs there is. Its not easy but its fun. Once you get started you usually can pick up hives about anywhere. I got this one hive from a outhouse in this park, I've smoked them out of chimneys that haven't been used in a long time. I have even caught bees swarming. One trick about keeping your hive off the ground is pour used motor oil around it to keep the ants out. The Italian bees to me are the best kind, along with the European. There is noting casual about raising bees, especially large scale. Go to the two sites I've listed they can get you started. Who knows maybe you'll get big enough to ship truck loads of bees to California or Florida to pollinate their crops. You get to know your bees and they you, then you don't have to smoke or suit up to gather your honey. Good luck.
