Hello I am looking for someone to put up and take care of a hive in my garden.  I have little over acre and half of produce that needs a little bee activity.  Please e-mail me with questions at  I live by the Muscatine area.

I have land near Palo, Iowa, and would like  to have some honey bees present on the property.  It is a good, ideal location with a lot of resources for the bees.  If you would like to place a hive or hives on  my property, please contact me at 319-573-7965 or  email at
Thanks, Larry Wiley
Joyce Hanson, who lives near Toddville,  has 40 acres of prairie for bees to forage and is seeking a share of the honey in exchange. Joyce can be contacted at 319-366-6720.
