Expectation of rent
The usual rent is one 454g jar of honey per hive per year. If you have other expectations please detail here.
Driving access
It's important that the beekeeper can drive right up to his hives in all seasons. Is this possible?
Public visibility
Will the hives be visible by the public, either walking or driving past?
Public access
Can a member of the public access the hives without crossing fences/gates etc?
Beekeeper access
In the summer beekeepers usually come once per week; in the winter usually once per month. But this can be at dawn, dusk or in between, depending on the needs of the bees. Can the beekeeper come as s/he pleases without prior arrangement?
Shared apiary
Are there any other beekeepers tenanted there already? It's not a problem to share an apiary but some beekeepers prefer an isolated apiary and knowing this will help them choose.
How many hives
How many hives would you like to host? Or, if you're not concerned, how many hives can the locatation accommodate, given that each hive would be at least 1 metre from others, plus an access path. An estimate is fine.
