Hi Ken,

Welcome to Albuquerque Beekeepers.  If you have any questions just ask.  I see you are going to keep bees in the south valley.  If you own land over 1/2 acre you may qualify for the agricultural exemption on your property tax to reduce your cost.  If you need access to a few links to help you let me know.
