One of the main objectives of every living being on is survival then living comfortably. To achieve this you must equip yourself with some basic knowledge and technical know-how, because without that surviving in itself becomes a struggle and that’s exactly what force into sharing this particular piece: 5 ways how to make money from bee keeping.

Bee keeping is not focused on honey production alone, it stretches beyond that limit. There are other aspects of bee keeping that are not pronounced but can earn an individual a living. So I need you to take a seat and ride with me as we dissect this together.

Sales and distribution of raw honey: I have talked about this in one of my article on How to Start Honey Business in Nigeria but I will still be doing some justices to it in this article. Starting Honey distribution does not entail having a bee farm or keeping bees in itself

You can start your honey business by buying from reputable or trusted honey dealer or bee keeper while all you do is package and distribute.

This is less stressful as it requires no work on your part especially in keeping the bees and tending to their needs.

The good news here is that we keep bees and also deal in raw honey. We sell both in wholesale and retail. For those who have interest in dealing in honey either as a business or a side hustle we are your best bet; you can reach me here: 08032912347

Start bee keeping farm: starting bee keeping or bee farm is a great adventure reason been is fun with some bee sting once a while no matter how you try to prevent it. Lol, don’t be scared; it’s part of the job hazard.

I won’t be talking much on this as you can refer to my article on: How to start Bee Keeping in Nigeria. Bee keeping is one business that’s still brooding in this part of the world and the good news is that you don’t need much cash to get started.

With your land in place and as low as N10,000 you can build a hive once you are well equipped with the knowledge required viola you are on your way to been a honey producer.

But remember knowledge comes first. So don’t get started without learning the ropes of the business. At our farm we do training for individuals and organizations but for those who can’t afford such services and still want to start I have a book that will guide you step by step on the way to go.

CHECK OUT THE BOOK HERE: Bee Keeping Goldmine

Consultancy in Bee Keeping: this is for people with experience in the trade. Please don’t consult for what you know little or nothing about.

As a practicing bee keeper with years of experience, it’s certain that you must have gathered enough knowledge.

These knowledge you’ve gather shouldn’t be kept personal or hoarded for selfish reason. You can make a living out of it by helping people solving their problems, guiding them so that they won’t face the same challenge you faced while starting or during farming.

Consulting is quite wide and is not stream lined. You can either go into bee setup for individuals or corporate bodies that need it or you can just stream your expertise to training only. And if you feel you have the energy and capacity you can do both just like.

Sales of bee keeping equipment: over the years most if not all bee keeping equipment were imported from China meaning we don’t have Nigerian bee equipment manufacturer. As we all know this is bad for the economy of our country.

But of recent we have few bee keepers who have taken such bold steps in a positive direction and I am glad to one of such.

So this is another line of business that can fetch you good income. All you need do is get yourself a supplier who manufacture while you deal in the sales of the equipment.

To get started, you can contact me as we also produce in large quantity and distribute to those in need of them. Contact: 08032912347

Sales of other Bee Products: apart from honey which is popularly known as a bee product, there are several others which include: bee pollen, beeswax, royal jelly, bee venom and a host of others.

You can pick or two study about their uses and benefits and start marketing as this will also add to your income at long run.

Bee keeping as a hold is bunch of goodies that any bee keeper should not throw away without looking deeper. I am sure you enjoy this post, please do me a favor by sharing it on your social media platform so that other people can be blessed by it.
Thank you

Share and Enjoy !
