      • Hi, Steven
        I saw this posting when looking for someone to remove a swarm from my place in Staunton. I don’t know if you’re still looking for a home for your hives, but I have a 1/3 acre in-town garden in Staunton you are welcome to use. Address: 316 E Beverley. You may be after a farmer with more acreage, but write me privately if you want to discuss. Katherine
