Bee farming is a great way of promoting biodiversity. It is an integral part of our Integrated Farming. Bee farming is mostly done for honey as product and some by products such as royal jelly, wax etc. but it is one of the best way to promote natural farming. Bees help in increasing our agricultural produce by pollination. Bees are best friends of farmers. They take nothing from us and gives a lot without even asking. This is really a great component of farming which every farmer should adopt and follow the nature’s way of farming.
We started our bee farm to enhance our production in our vedic farms and to get Honey as a gift of nature. We have Italian bees which are best for starting bee farms. With time we learned a lot and applied our vedic methodologies in bee farming. With nature and ancient science we developed Integrated Bee Farming System(IBFS) which is unique in the world. We analysed this new farming style and results were astonishing. It helps in creating a mini ecosystem which gives you almost zero budget farming and production increases more than 30-40%. IBFS is a synergy of bee farming, crops production and vediic science.
We have developed scientific and strategic business models to help others grow more in sustainable manner. We share this knowledge with our fellow farmers in the form of agriculture service.
Our Bee Farming Service provides the following:
Technical knowledge about bee farming
Transformation Plan for fields towards vedic farms
Integration Plan for increasing production
Business Development and Marketing Strategies to promote Agripreneurship
“Grow like nature to feed every being on the planet”
Keeping bees at the large scale for commercial purpose as a business plan is increasing in this fast growing world. One can easily learn apiculture and can earn more money as profit with less effort. Bee rearing in a wooden box is also beneficial because it does not harm the bee eggs since it is protected by the wooden box. Honey can be easily taken out from the box by the beekeeper. Since proper care and a relation of the beekeeper with the bees are the main factors which affect the production of the honey. One can easily earn high amount of profit with low investment.
Best Method for Bee Farming
Use wooden box with Horizontal Frame hives for honey collection. In this method frames are mobile and can be reused which saves money and increases our profit.
