Almond Board |

Idahoan beekeepers have invested in purchasing facilities for bee storage during the state’s cold winters. Beekeeper Adam French, who plans to build a facility that can hold 15,000 hives in a temperature-controlled climate, said he could afford this investment because of the high rates almond farmers have been paying for pollination services.
