    Looking for a bee keeper. Especially one that might be looking for land to place hives. Will also consider renting bees for a few weeks during fruit tree pollination season.
    PM or respond here. Thanks in advance.

    There is one right on the main drag (Crystal Rd) in Vestaburg, but I do not know his name/business name though. I bought some beeswax from him a few years back.

    Might want to also post this in the "non-game animals, plants" section - there are occasional posts on bee keeping there.

    There is/was semi trailers and hives stacked everywhere in an almost parking lot type setting last time I went through town. Tiny tiny sticker/sign on the door of the mid sized industrial type building though. West side of road part way through town. Not exactly sure if it is that way RIGHT NOW though, I do not go through the burg very often. I happened to see them working and stopped by the day I bought my wax. Last time through it still looked like a functioning apiary operation though. If I recall correctly the owner actually lives in Lakeview, but that is trusting my memory.
