I am a semi-commercial beekeeper looking for a small piece of land to put about 50 hives of bees. They are in pallets and do not take up much room. I would need to visit them fairly regularly and be able to access via truck. If you have an apple orchard, blueberry farm, fruit trees, etc.. that need to be pollinated I can provide that. It would be ideal if I could keep them there year round. I can also pay you in free honey at the end of the season or money, whatever we can agree on. Give me a call if there is something/somewhere I can use to help grow my apiary. I live in the PDX area but am willing to travel up to an hour or hour and a half. Thank you very much, I appreciate it.
Hi Tim, I see that your request is from March so this reply might be too late but I'm looking for a few extra streams of income and have several acres in West Salem that I think would be great for beekeepers. We don't need honey or pollination (though we'd take a jar or two if you're willing), just extra income. We have mason bees, and some other happy wild bees (bumblebees, a honey bee hive might be around somewhere, not sure). Let me know if you're still interested in the land. You'd have easy access when needed.
