I noticed there are several northern bee source members who have said something about wintering hives in the South.
If someone would be interested in trading a small number of Nucs/hives each year for a good location to winter in the South please PM me.
I have access to a large number of acres in farmland, forklifts and skid-stear loader to help unload / load along with a nice parking lot for tractor trailer type trucks and my labor to help feed/care for your hives if wanted/needed.
It won't cost any out of pocket $$$ to use this location or the equipment.
I'm located in the southern piedmont of central North Carolina with fairly easy access to interstate 85 / 77 and 95.
