View Full Version : Winter Host In Florida

I wanted to let any commercial beeks know I have 6 acres in North East Florida (Bradford Co.) with 4 of that being a garden 90% of the year available to host your hives for the winter (?up to 200 hives?), in trade for splits/honey. Quantity is negotiable.

Thanks, I can be reached at 904-769-4164 if no answer please leave message.

You might also try advertising for a Gallberry yard. I would suspect you have plenty of Gallberry/Palmetto in Bradford Co. Most guys from up North want to go further south to sit on the Pepper in the fall and stay to overwinter.

Thank you John, I had forgot about that, even my State bee inspector said that. I will repost with the updated info. Thanks again.
