Good day! I am a beekeeper with 4 hives in the North Valley looking for a location this spring with ample citrus.  If you have a large lot with lots and lots of citrus of any kind, and are interesting in maximizing your crop, I would love to hear from you.  Assuming I get honey from this, which is the goal, I will gladly give you a half gallon Ball jar (about 6 lbs) for the use of your groves.  I am not asking for payment for pollination services, like most beekeepers.  Please let me know if you are interested.  Thank you!

Don't have a lot of citrus.  I am a amateur beekeeper who had to get rid of her bees while living in Glendale.  So I am now living on a Maricopa County land near Old Buckeye.  Do you know someone who would like to sell a hive?   Sharan Hoyle 602-791-8194

Hi Sharan.  I personally don't but you could reach out to to see if any of the older beekeepers who are no longer physically able to maintain hives would be willing to sell a hive, or at least sell a split.  I got started with splits and a whole hive thinking it would be better for me, and it turns out the packaged bees I ordered are my best and fastest growing hive.  Also, if you go to, you can order inexpensive hive parts that will ship free if you order enough.  I hope that helps.  Happy Beekeeping!
