I'm thinking of starting a small hive in the summer/spring, would you recommend it?

Yes I would. I have 5 hives and working my way up to 10 hives

How many jars would one hive produce?

 

Is the honey in the blue crates the same as that close up of the jar above? That's looks a bit darker.

My son's mate's Dad does this as a bit more than the hobby from which it grew. He has his own hives plus others that he sites on sympathetic owners land locally. He then manages the hives. Makes for some interesting flavours if say the hive is sited in an apple orchard when that's the predominant flavour. Just over a fiver for a jar too. He sells to local delis, garden centres etc.
