"I am now researching a Layens hive for use in the spring.  It is a horizontal hive - more like a Langstroth on its side.  My husband has plans and will be building a few this winter. Jill Ross"

Hi Bridget,  give Lou a call at 505-286-4843 and she will reserve the bees for you.  I am in the process of switching all my videos from Vimeo to YouTube.  We will start doing live streams this week.  The first one will be on honeybees recognized as livestock by NM statute for the agricultural exemption on vacant land or land this is greater than 1.5 acres.  My website where all the current videos are is www.nmhoney.com.  My youtube channel is:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7pLRh9nrFI

I see you are looking at packages from Mann Lake,  besides being expensive with shipping costs the bees will arrive most of the time in rough shape, unless they have figured out a different method of shipping in the past year.

Hi Bridget, Best wishes to you, I am retiring in about a year and becoming a hobbyist, so in anticipation I have scaled down to a maximum of 25 hives, and significantly reduced the number of removals and swarms I capture. Hopefully my daughters will want to continue the business as it has been a very profitable agricultural endeavor for me. Nice to meet another Native NM and in fact that is where my business name derives itself from is my identity with our "NM" culture, which goes back centuries,  Yo soy Uno Antigua del Norte.
