Welcome to California!
After a 1,600 drive we have finally found ourselves in California. We will remain here for the next 3 weeks grading, treating and feeding the bees to insure they are up to the standards of the California almond growers we are serving. This year we must guarantee an 8 frame average and will be receiving $185 per hive placed. This is up $25 from our last years amount. After paying our broker his $10 per hive cut, and paying a standard $30 placement fee to the guy I come out here with that leaves me with $140 per hive! I am very excited for my first year of actually having my bees in California. We will be receiving our first semi-load of bees tonight so wish us luck. More to come thanks guys.
