Usually just a share of honey is more than fair. Unless you need them for a commercial ag business. Then be prepared to pay some cash for rental.

You won't even know the hives are there for the most part. I can stand within a few feet of mine and watch their activity and see what kind of pollen they are bringing in. Wear light clothes and a hat if you have dark hair. Don't want to be mistaken for a bear.

Speaking of which, you should definitely consider an electric fence around the hives if bears are present in your area.
