I would like to hear some responses on how many successful hives people are keeping in a yard and still producing honey without over foraging. Obviously the location of the yard would play a big factor on how many hives, so maybe also list what your surroundings are.
I currently have 1 hive on 40 acres in the Northwest NY. Its in a bit of a suburban area. I am planning on increasing to 8 hives and wondering how many more I could sustain on the property. I guess by the end of this summer I'll know for sure.
Spring is almost here!!
