Basic bee yard info

So I have 18 very strong hives in either double deeps or one deep and two mediums. My current queens are either made onsite usinf open mating or from the following sources: zia queen bees , carnie queens, hunter apiaries, bobby oakes, honey rustlin farms, and one excellant package queen from gardner bees from my first year!

I am planning on going head first into grafting in the upcoming spring to start producing from my best hives and hopefully so called local survivor hives.

My overall expectations are to have around 50 healthy hives and then start selling nucs.
