Join Jon LaPorte, Michigan State University Extension Farm Business Management Educator, for a presentation on how beekeepers can turn their beekeeping hobby into a business. Jon specializes in farm business analysis, business transition, income tax education, and general farm business management topics such economics of technologies and return on investment. Beekeepers who started keeping bees as a hobby and who hope to turn their operation into a business will need to consider organizational structures, record keeping, and more. Join us for an informative webinar about how to transition from hobby to business!

Please note that this webinar is focused on farm management and record keeping; it will not cover beekeeping management to grow your number of colonies, increase your honey production, etc.

This webinar will be recorded. Event organizers plan to post the recording to the Michigan State University Beekeeping YouTube channel with closed captions, however, it may take several weeks to prepare and upload the video.
