    Keep your friend close and your enemy's closer. I like to keep my ear the rail so I won't get hit by the train. I live in Paramounts back yard they are buying up all the small ranches in the area. Farmer that said they would never sell took the money and paramount want to be self suffient in bees and they need places to keep them.

    I talked to the guys at Paramount about a month ago after hearing some crazy rumors, and the guy in charge of buying told me that they hadn't bought any bees this year. None since they originally bought out a guy 3 years ago that owned about 3500 hives. He did say they want 90000 hives over the next 10 years and want to buy an established queen producer, ect. So maybe we will see wonderful brand honey on the shelves some day. I had heard they bought out a large guy for around 1200 per hive, but alas it wasn't the case. Cuz if it had been I wouldn't be able to get out of my honey house fast enough.

    Nothing to fear but fear itself, do what you do well, and the rest will fall into place.

    Does any one know what they are paying for the hives that they want to buy? Just wondering.
