The Two Beekeepers apiary is unique in that there is not just one bee yard. Since neither of the Two Beekeepers live in an area that will allow beekeeping we have had to “source” bee yards to keep our interests going strong. Word of mouth and a few advertisements helped us find a few very nice people willing to let us keep bees on their property.
So officially our bee yards have a forage area of most of central DuPage county. All of them are in incorporated areas. These are some of the most rural areas possible in a very urban county. Since lot sizes in these areas are typically measured in acres, nobody applies chemicals to their grass. This allows the bees to forage in the areas surrounding the bee yards without having to worry about coming into contact with non bee friendly chemicals.
