If you are interested in having bees on your property, but don't have the time or knowledge to maintain and care for them, hive hosting with Hill Top Hives may be the answer. Ideally you will be present when your hive/s are opened so you can learn more about how to care for your bees.
Beehives on your property will increase pollination for orchards and vegetable gardens. Plus there is the 'feel good factor' of knowing that you're doing your bit to help the Honey bee survive!
