Do you need an efficient system to manage records for your homestead honeybees?

Let me know if this sounds familiar…

  • You are ready to sell some of your honey or bee packages, but the buyers are hesitant because you don’t have clear records of how your bees have been fed and cared for.
  • You try to decide if this year’s honey yield is more productive than last year, but you have no way to know for sure.
  • You want to be taken seriously as a beekeeper, but you don’t have numbers to back up your productivity.

I GET IT!

It can be complicated to jot down all of the information that you need to keep track of all while giving the best care to your bees.

Beekeepers will often grab a pen and a notebook to scribble in, but there is no organization to this method.

What happens when you need to find specific information quickly, but you have to wade through a mess of mix and match records?

I know how frustrating this can be because I’ve been there, too.

When I first started beekeeping, I thought that I could keep track of the details in my head…. Hahaha! Laughable, right?

Then I started writing in the all-purpose notebook…until I realized that I couldn’t find ANYTHING that I needed without spending 30 minutes of valuable time searching for it.

I FINALLY realized that there is a better way!

Imagine having all of your honeybee records organized and streamlined…

That would be wonderful, right? You would look & feel more professional, you could care for your animals better, and you wouldn’t have to waste time trying to find the numbers that you need when you need them.

This is where The Honeybee Record Book comes in!

FAQ

Not usually, but occasionally I will make simple custom orders. You can always feel free to message me with requests to see if it is something I can work in.

All you need to do is print out the sheets (one-sided OR front-and-back), hole punch them (or use sheet protectors), and stick them in a binder! You can even laminate the sheets and use a dry erase marker if you wish.

Currently, no… But I am working on some possible solutions for that 🙂

Who Am I to Talk to You About Livestock Records?

Hey, there!

I’m Jess and I was once a TERRIBLE record keeper.

I had no idea if I was making a profit from my animals, if we had consistent health issues, and I couldn’t remember where most of the animals had come from (a breeder, a sale, a friend??).

When I FINALLY took the time to untangle my mess, I realized that an organized record keeping system would improve my operation significantly!

That’s when I created The Livestock Management Binder. I have updated and improved these record books over the years and I am so excited that I now get to share them with you!
