Apiary Management

What is an Apiary?

An apiary (also known as a bee yard) is a place where beehives of honey bees are kept. Traditionally beekeepers (also known as apiarists) paid land rent in honey for the use of small parcels. Some farmers will provide free apiary sites, because they need pollination and farmers who need many hives often pay for them to be moved to the crops when they bloom.
