east of dfw
ok stupid question i want to talk to farmers about pollination but the big crops in this area are corn, maize, grass farms, hay grazer. now will any of them be interested in letting me keep bees there and will it help the crops.
Perhaps, if one of the crops were alfalfa grown for seed.

IF you are looking for honey locations, go bang on a few doors. We used to take bees to East TX and still have friends that winter there. There are lots of locations that are left in pasture where the owners welcome bees, in fact we have never been turned down. Look for a likely place, find out who owns it then ask them with a jar of honey......works (almost) every time.
IF you are looking to be paid for pollination services you will need to go where those crops that pay to get pollinated are.
