Re: Just curious
Most commercial guys work with farmers and ranchers and keep their "out yards" at these locations. You can run several thousand hives if you have enough locations and a big enough area. You would have to be fairly rich to actually own enough land to run even a couple of hundred hives if you didn't work with the locals. In the winter the hives are brought to "holding" or "wintering" yards which makes it easier to feed and shield against the cold.
