Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) Publications Raising Healthy Honey Bees
Why do people keep honey bees? The simple answer is that honey bees produce honey and wax and improve the value of crops by pollinating flowers. The wax and honey may be consumed in the home or sold on the open market for cash. Keeping honey bees is the only type of farming that can be done profitably without owning land. Beekeeping can be done by anyone with fairly good health and strength.
