To limit competition between our hives and get the widest variety of nectar sources for our honey, we select varied locations for all our bees. Some bee yards are for honey production colonies while others are for raising more colonies and queen bees. We currently have over a dozen different locations. To track the colony health, we make sure we keep detailed logs of all visits to each location. We treat our bees as part of our family. Here are some of our hive locations:

You might have seen this yard while driving down Route 18 between Washington and Hickory. The electric fence is to keep out curious horses the bees share pasture with.

This yard often hosts young nucleus colonies as they're growing. It's a beautiful remote spot on a hill where we sometimes catch deer or turkeys passing through.
