    what might be a fair price, in yard jugs of honey, to place 50 hives on a persons property. not pollination just some nucs in 50 hive bodys?

    A pound a hive is about right.

    We give out 60lbs of honey for our yards. They are all farm folks out here and use it up.

    I must be the cheapskate then, we give each land owner a gallon of honey and maybe some Suebee products, like the honey barbacue sauce. TED

    Us Germans must must be cheap. We give our landowners 5 quart jars, usually two of summer honey, and then one late summer and two fall honey.One year they got a Basswood comb honey section, but we all know how rare those are.

    we paid 60- 1 lb jars for 2 locations 50 hives in each. The landowner and grove manager also requested the honey in honey bears so they could give them as gifts....small price to pay for great locations

    1 lb per hive. I have a waiting list of farmers who want hives on their properties.

    6 qt jars. Cropland here rents for $125.00 an acre avg. The space my yards of 32 hives take up is about 25' x 35'. So I'm paying alot more than the cash croppers :-)
