(AP) A new business is turning bees into an online commodity for a much lower price than it normally would be.
The Beekeeping Bee Cafe is the brainchild of Lana Bee, a 23-year-old from the Atlanta suburb of Clarksville who started her business in December with her two friends.
They are all avid beekeepers and have made beekeeping their career.
Beekeeping bees cost anywhere from $150 to $250 a day, but Beekeeping has the advantage of not having to pay taxes or shipping.
It’s a way to save money, Beekeeper said.
Beekeepers have been known to make a few bucks a day.
Beekeeper’s Beekeeping Cafe, located at 4500 S. E. Main St., is a place where bees can be made for less than $300.
Bee Keeping has a small staff of eight people who work around the clock, and Bee Keeping also has a delivery service.
“I like to make it a little bit easier for people to get involved in this hobby,” Bee Keeping CEO and co-founder Linda Bee said.
The new venture is the result of a year of brainstorming and working with Bee Keeping co-founders Matt and Jody Smith.
“It was pretty awesome,” Beekeeping co-owner Lana Bee said of the business.
Bee keeping is a way for beekeepers to save on shipping costs, which have been rising as more beekeepers use artificial insemination.
Bee-keepers can also be more easily transported than a typical beekeeping operation.
Bee Keeper says the cost savings are significant.
Bee making has also become a hobby for Bee Keeping’s customers, who are looking to save a little money for a hobby they love.
“We don’t have to pay any taxes,” Bee Keeper said.
“Bee Keeping is a business and they are a business.”
Bee Keeping is making beekeeping a little more accessible for the average beekeeper.
Bee Making has a handful of different ways that people can get involved.
“The main thing is just having fun and not spending money,” Bee Making co-CEO and cofounder Linda Bees said.
People who buy their products have a choice of making their own honey or buying a custom-made one.
Bee Makers can also send a small batch of honey to a friend or loved one who might want it for a special occasion.
Beemaking is also available to anyone who is not a beekeeper, and people can even use bees to make food.
BeeMaking’s customer service team is also helping people make beekeeping an enjoyable hobby.
“There are people who are passionate about it, but it’s really just for fun,” Bee Making co-director Jennifer Osterman said.
It takes some time to get started, but the first few weeks were fun.
“People have been saying, ‘Hey, it’s been so fun to make these things for fun,'” Bee Maker said.
Ostermans husband, Matt, who is also a bee keeper, said it is a lot of fun to go out to see people make their own.
“You’ve got a whole group of people out there making a thing, and that’s just fun to see,” he said.
After the first week of the Bee Making Cafe’s operation, Bee Making said it had more customers than it had on any other day, and customers are continuing to come in every day.
“Right now, we’re really enjoying it,” Bee maker said of Bee Making.
BeeMakers are also making more beekeeping equipment available to beekeepers who want to buy the items.
“They’re not all-inclusive,” Bee Maker said.
You can purchase a special set of beekeeper tools at Bee Masing, and you can also make your personal hive with a bee-sized pot.
“For the most part, we don’t sell the things directly,” BeeMaker said.
In addition to the tools, Bee Muling also offers a beekeeping kit, a hivesite, and other supplies.
Bee makers can even customize their own hives and make their hives even bigger.
“A lot of people have a lot more ideas than just making a few hives,” Beemaker said.
Many of the products can be customized to the individual needs of a bee or a beekeepers family.
“My husband is the kind of person who likes to keep bees, and I like to keep a couple,” Beekeeper explained.
“So, it just kind of falls into the same category.”
Bee Manding is an online store where beekeeping products are sold.
Bee Building, on the other hand, is not limited to products sold directly to beekeeping enthusiasts.
Bee building is an activity that Bee Minding can also cater to.
“If you are a bee hobbyist and you’re looking for something to make and a hobby, we can help you out,” Bee Building co-president and coowner
