-   I have 15 acres 1 mile SE from the intersection of FM 971 and Texas 130. This property is about 5 minutes east of downtown Georgetown. The property is farm land with about 20 trees and very little other brush. I have been harvesting coastal bermuda hay off of it. I usually have sunflowers that grow on it. I will plant any vegetation needed to produce pollen. I have a commercial water system.

Subject: land for bees

   I recently bought 12 acres in Georgetown on the San Gabriel. Six acres of the land has an ag valuation. I’m wondering if one of your members might like to place and maintain six hives on my land. I’d ask nothing in return except for help maintaining my ag valuation (and maybe a jar of honey every now and then!). Is this something you could help me with? The land was previously owned by Rusty and Lael Winkstern, and I believe one of your members previously kept bees there under a similar arrangement. Thanks- Kenneth Youens.   Posted 2/2020

Subject: We have a acreage,, hives, jar’s and other equipment. Looking for someone who wants to manage the bees.  Looking for someone who wants to manage the bees. Last year we got to active hives from my brother in Brenham for my son to manage. Sadly he did not do a good job and the bees are gone. I am out of town a lot with ailing parents in Fort Worth and grandchildren in Houston so I do not want to manage them. I grew up with bees on my parents property and love having them around in the wonderful things they do for the environment. Thanks, I hope there’s someone in your organization wanting to manage more hives. Also I would not mind if someone wanted to add more hives to the property I hope there’s someone in your organization wanting to manage more hives. Also I would not mind if someone wanted to add more hives to our property thanks Evie 512-470-5428   Posted 2/20

 

We have 7+ acres out in Florence and are wondering if you can help us find someone to maintain bees on our property. We would like them for the purpose of applying for an ag exemption and to help the bee population in general.

 It is 7 acres with some woods and some open land as well. We have lots of wildflowers in the spring. We do have a wet weather small creek when it rains a lot and there is a pond on the property behind us.faith0428@gmail.com   Posted 3/2020

Hives for sale

I have 2 hives for sale that have 8 frames. The first Hive has 1 deep super, 7 frames, and 1 frame feeder. It has a Cordovan Italian Queen that was installed last fall. It currently has 3 frames of brood. It is doing so well that I am having to bleed the population to prevent them from swarming.  I am asking $200 for this hive. 

 

The second hive has 2 deep supers, 15 frames, and 1 frame feeder. It has a hot queen that needs to be replaced. I am asking $300 for this hive. It is doing successful right now and should be able to split in spring, and make some honey this year.

 

All the hives were treated last fall in November for mites and had a mite count of 3% before treatment. They were treated with Formic Pro for 14 days. They are currently being treated right now again with Formic Pro, the had a 1.6% mite count before treatment, I will update you with a new mite count if you'd like. If you have any feedback or suggested changes I would be glad to know.

 

The reason for selling them is that I will be splitting my stronger hives in spring and will have too many hives.

Thank you,
