Got a call from a farmer that grows fresh produce, he mentioned watermelons, honeydew, cantaloups, beans, peas. Soybeans, he needs bees. He wants to meet with me next week. Said he will eventually need 25 hives or so. He said his farms, (he has multiple places), but his immediate need is a new place he is starting. It's about 80 acres and it is surrounded by soybeans. He is planting the 80 acres in melons. He also said it's about 1000 feet from the Arkansas river and the river banks are grown up for miles. He also says he runs his own brick and mortar produce store and I could sell the honey in his store. I have to go check this out. What about nectar from the melon plants, do they produce nectar. For some reason I am thinking they don't, but cant find much material on it. But if this 80 acres in indeed in middle of soybeans and a lot of grown up stuff along river, I think this may be a good deal. As usual, I have to ask the experts. Boy, things seem to be starting to pop.
