We are offering locations to place hives from late fall to early spring. Our primary business is agricultural production, however we are exploring options to utilize marginal areas for ecosystems services. Some of these locations will be established in plants which provide extended and early season habitat and food sources for bees. Some of this habitat may also be pastures with clover species.
The business I am planning is a custom grazing operation on leased land. My customers will be local dairy and beef producers. I will charge a monthly fee per head to graze replacement heifers, dry cows, and stockers year round. Land lease amounts will be established by Animal Units per acre. Sound sustainable holistic management practices will be used in all aspects of the business. The business will employ myself and two employees, who will provide the daily labor required to move cattle and track animal perfornance.
