Hi, I am new to beekeeping and am trying to find out how much honey a hive in the bushveld will produce per year. Our (experienced) instructor says 3 supers of 15 kg each, 3 times per year, which is 135 kg of honey per hive per year. I have not been able to find any source which says that more than 30 kg per hive per year is possible.
Thank you, Lantz. Please do keep in touch. I have had some feedback from a beekeeper in our area and it seems that we can expect at least 30 kg per hive every 3 months. We have aloes in winter so we can get a harvest in August as well. Time will tell but it is very exciting to see everything come together.
