Looking for beekeepers in Finland + Survey

Post by ilMatti22 » Thu Oct 01, 2020 1:02 pm

Hello everyone!

A few days ago I posted my questionnaire for my business idea. As I mentioned in the other post, I'm collecting data from potential customers regarding the so-called "beehive adoption".

However, I also need to collect data from beekeepers in Finland. What follows is the questionnaire for professional beekeepers: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ECjlYs ... KgVSI/edit <--- If you are a beekeeper, I would really appreciate if you can answer this questionnaire. it means a lot to me! Please, feel free to share the link above, if one of your contacts is a beekeeper.

Once again, thank you in advance!

Why do you then look for beekeepers on expat forum?
I got the impression of your survey that you don't know much about beekeeping in finland?

Yeah I get your point actually. I chose this forum because you never know. But I understand it's perhaps not the best platform. I'm trying to understand better the opinion of other beekeepers regarding this matter here in Finland.

Your survey is for honey producers. There are beekeepers in Finland who are not that interested in producing honey. They keep bees as a hobby and keep the honey for themselves, friends and family.

I have a dozen hives and I do produce honey, so I answered your survey. Hope it helps.

Hi! Thank you so much for answering the questionnaire! And thank you for your feedback. That is true, not all beekeepers are honey producers. I didn't consider that difference :thumbsup:
