We are very lucky to have several friends with larger pieces of property around who have told us we could put our bees out on their acres. Obviously we're limited as to what we can do in our backyard. SO more property is a necessity as our hives keep growing.
Our friend TS let us put the rest of our hives this Spring out by his property near Smith Rock, about 15 minutes away from our house.
It became quite an exciting trip out there to visit the bees every week or two. The kids would really enjoy running around the acreage, watching the bees, playing by (but thankfully not in) the canal, calling to the cows in the neighboring pasture....all the easy, fun stuff that kids like to do that make us wish we had our own property.
Someday. For now our bees get the luxury.
