Hobbyists and gardeners, why don’t you go for beekeeping which has innumerable benefits?
Oh, nobody told you … I see.
Well, listen to me today then. And listen well.
This ancient practice, this very modern and elite hobby, beekeeping, has been very noisy recently. But when you enter the off-grid world, beekeeping means a lot of different things as well.
Come sit with me, and let me introduce you to this phenomenal hobby!
Off-Grid Living & Beekeeping – What does it mean?
Beekeeping while living off-grid means freedom and another denunciation of the social structures.
You must be thinking why at off-grid living we promote such habits that free you from social barriers … well duh! That’s the exact reason why.
Living off-grid MEANS to be independent of all that the government and private sector is producing – although you can never be completely independent, you can still go to a seriously impressive extent at this. And growing your own food is the very first step towards total freedom.
This brings us back to beekeeping.
Beekeeping means the production of essentially your OWN honey—a vital ingredient in a healthy lifestyle—and you’re pollinating a big radius of your off-grid domicile, which is an extremely eco-friendly thing to do.
So, what benefits does beekeeping exactly brings about when you’re living off-grid? Let’s get to that!
Benefits of Beekeeping – Say Hi to Your new Hobby
Once you know all the benefits thoroughly, you’ll surely want to start beekeeping as a full-time hobby. Bear in mind that yes, it has it’s hazards as well.
And for that reason, I’ve given a little safety guideline below as well so do check it out too!
- Your OWN Honey
Hands down, the best benefit any hobby can yield for us is making us independent of external producers, and such is the example of beekeeping.
Natural honey contains nutrients and antioxidants that the processed honey lacks due to different industrial processes it goes through. Needless to say, the essence and health benefits are drained in this procedure, so health benefits surely are there to celebrate!
- Unbelievable By-Products
Nobody ever told us that beekeeping has many more products than honey alone. One of the very exciting by-products is wax—yes, the same that’s used in candles.
There’s hardly much you can do with wax alone. But you surely can sell it to local buyers for decent profit! You won’t be having to do ANYTHING to maintain the beehive for good wax production, the natural by-product will be pleasing enough for the buyers to buy!
One thing that you want to ensure when living off-grid is cleanliness—not only inside your bunker but also in your surroundings.
Pollination is a natural part of our ecosystem. Providing your green countryside neighborhood when living off-grid with a pollinating beehive can be very refreshing for you.
Mind that 80% of the pollination is carried out by bees … imagine the refreshment you’ll be providing to the nature around you as a result of beekeeping!
- A side business maybe?
THIS IS TOO UNBELIEVABLY EXCITING!
Know all those Instagram gurus who keep talking about growth and having passive income streams? Trust me, this is one of those!
Low maintenance and costs mean that anything you earn will be ALL YOURS. No cost subtractions. No nothing.
So, by this formula, know that the surplus honey produced can be bottled and sold. You can choose not to bottle it and have it sold to some bottler as well though. But the returns are ENORMOUS. You’ll be getting a decent income all by doing nothing about it—except for occasional harvesting, of course.
You got it, right?
Benefits and benefits only are the motto of this very wise habit of our forefathers!
A Little How-To Guide – Let’s know it all
Benefits are all good until it comes to doing it all yourself.
So, how to keep bees, exactly?
Get on With It First – No wasting time.
The basic and most essential step in succeeding at ANYTHING is to get started with it.
If you don’t start, nothing’s gonna happen. So, take the bitter bite and make a little list of things you’ll be needing. Then buy them and set them up. You’ll be good to go!
Get the right tools – You’ll be needing Guns
Order a nice beehive that you think will be a worthy investment. If it’s a poor quality one, you’re gonna regret it after the first harvest and the investment will be wasted. It might be a considerable investment, but returns are wholesome, I promise.
You’ll be needing a very good beekeeper’s suit as well, because really, do you want to get stung by thousands of bees at once?
No bruh, you need to get the cash comin’, so don’t be afraid to invest!
Get the Bees Buzzin’ – It’s gonna be scary
This is the main part.
Once you’ve got the guns, you need enemies to shoot on—and bees are the enemies here.
You can order a swarm of bees, and there are many different types of bees you can get. But by far, the best ones are Italian honey bees … but their price depends on where you live. So look out for that!
Keep practicing – Don’t leave it.
DON’T. EVER. DO. THIS.
When you exit such hobbies, it’s only to regret it later on that why didn’t you held onto them.
There are exclusively awesome beekeeping books and guides that you can read to ensure you’re doing your hobby to its fullest. Off-grid living is the art of mastering every aspect of life yourself, don’t keep yourself lacking in this field!
