"I took down a tree last year with Lu Lu and Amy Owen and removed some bees.  Totally successful as far as the removal.  Hated ruining their home.  I'll only ever do that again if I know they're going to kill them anyway."

"Hi Katie, I am sure there are some beeks in the ABQ area with some local honey. Best wishes, and in my opinion the best honey comes out of your own hive."

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):

Thank you so much for the welcome, Raymond.  I joined this site in order to find where I can buy honey locally.  I've tried googling, that's how I found this site.

Bees are very interesting and I plant for them and any other wildlife like hummingbirds.  

Looking forward to finding information and maybe getting to know some nice folks.

Hi Ray, thank you for the welcome.  I just acquired 2 hives from Mace K. who is moving to CO. I am new to beekeeping and excited by the opportunity.  These are health hives, boxes are top bar, built by Jason Fink, who also helped me place them on our North Valley property.  Unfortunately, I will miss the august meeting but look forward to attending future beek meetings.

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.

Hello, and thanks for the invitation.  I'd like to learn from the experiences of Warre beeks in the ABQ area.  How do I contact them?
