I am in need of a bigger better "bee area". I was thinking about just going to some of the farms here in central Pa and asking if I could set up a bee yard on their land. All though I am not opposed to "pollinating" for farmers I need to have a year round bee yard. Has anyone tried this and if so did you find the farmers interested in allowing for a fulltime bee yard?

By the way anyone in Central Pa wanting to sell a small farm or bunch of land for real cheep let me know Smiley

Many farmers and orchards welcome the beekeeper to put hives on their property here in Northern Illinois.

Greg,

Just ask your friends, relatives and co-workers if they know a farmer. I am sure they will be more than happy to help you out. If not, then contact the farms in your area by letter or email of your intent. I keep my hives on a farm in South Jersey year round and the farmer, now a good friend is tickled to have the bees on his farm. It will all work out for you. Just ASK !! grin

Greg, Here in florida most farmers would welcome the idea and to sweeten the deal you could offer some honey to them.  I got a 720 acre feild to put hives around just by asking the farmer.  Just like said before just ask around, someone will help you out.
