    Probably way off here, not super familiar with the Fed agencies lands in Arizona, but there is a lot of Fed land out there. And many agencies issue SUPs (special use permits) for various commercial uses. BLM, BIA, NPS, might be worth looking in to as honey bees are high on their interests. That way your money goes into materials and bees, versus land and get better bang for your buck. Plus unless you purchase vast acreage, you are only going to be able to stack 40 to 60 hives on a site that will be foraging in a 3 mile radius.

    There is a process for getting a Special Use Permit for an apiary on National Forest land.

    And look what I found ...

    A USFS Special Use permit for: D. A. Lusby, Apiary in the Coronado National Forest in Arizona.
    I believe that would be Dee Lusby.

    How did I leave Big Green off my list?

    If I was closer to some of the forest land here I would be doing the same.

    Some on on this forum have been just totally blasted us for using government funds so are quite gun shy from discussing what we perceive as wonderful work.
