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):
87002

Ray, Thanks for the welcome. I currently do not have a hive, but have thought about getting one. I have been interested in the plight of our pollinators and how to best support them in their very important role in the ecosystem. My most current interest is in moving the hive in my wall though! (So I guess now I can say that I have had a hive, even though they choose me!) Thanks for supporting such a great source of bee information.
