i have 3 small farmers that i keep bees on their land. Two of them have watermelons and cantaloupes and we had agreed on $50 per hive for the pollination services but they are small farmers and i ended up just swapping watermelons/cantaloupes/tomatoes for the pollination services. The other farmer is close and it gives me a place to add to my apiary and he gets the added benefit of having the bees around at no charge to either of us. i'm sure you can find someone around that wants to increase their hives and needs another bee-yard to place hives.
