A PDF of Alamance County Hive Locations can be downloaded HERE. This is a Geographic Information System (GIS) map composed of multiple layers of information. In this case an Alamance County map has 122 hive locations plotted with a 1-mile flight radius that our honey bees travel as they forage on nectar & pollen. Also included are Alamance County’s Voluntary Agriculture Districts that include properties that are dedicated to either five acres of horticulture, ten acres of agriculture, or twenty acres of forestry.
