Re: Sourwood honey
Are you in a rural area? How did you come up with 12? It is hard for me to even begin to guess how many sourwood trees there are in my bees' foraging range.

And if he doesn't want to....there are countless other beekeepers who would be happy to bring a dozen or so.
PS...if you have bears an electric fence is an important addition.
