A little about Why I am Here

AntiguasDelNorte Honey Bee Farm is a New Mexico Registered Apiary and a business member of New Mexico True. My name is Ray Espinoza and I am a Certified BeeKeeper and professional Honey Bee rescue expert and BeeKeeping Educator. I've chosen the following Motto; "I help Honeybees with people problems".

We currently maintain 25-40 Honey Bee colonies both Langstroth and TopBar.

Another of our key interests is working to support other pollinators (Bumblebees and Mason Bees).

I enjoy networking with other beekeepers. My favorite past times include all aspects of beekeeping including Honey Bee removals (cutouts) and capturing swarms. I enjoy teaching and sharing with other Beekeepers. We have host locations who's owners share in our hive hosting and co-operative, and we offer Hives for pollination rental to small organic farms.

If you would like to know more please inquire.

If you need assistance with a Bee question or issue drop me a line, If I can't help, It is likely I know someone who can.

Join me in sharing and helping to steward ethical and passionate fostering of our incredible HoneyBee resource.

I look forward to sharing a Bee-adventure with you watch for one of our upcoming events.

Uno Antigua Del Norte....
I use the following type of bee hives:
Top bar, Langstroth
My bee hives are primarily located here (ZIP code):

Raymond! I'm pretty sure we met at a local food fest at the Hubbell House in the south valley this summer. You were very helpful about beekeeping stuff & even invited me to come check out your hives. I'd love to take you up on that offer if it still stands!

Thanks for the warm welcome Raymond.
I am not an aspiring beekeeper and joined because I wanted to touch base with local beekeepers to see if I could get some bees relocated on my property.
