I'd happily have hives on my land if I had the space. It depends what the beekeeper is looking for - is he/she wanting the bees to be close to the moorland for heather honey, or orchards for blossom? Or just general flowers for a mixed honey. Farmers sometimes pay beekeepers to place their hives on their farm to ensure that their crops such as oilseed rape are well pollinated. Of course, we then come to the neonic question
I would respond to the ad and see if what you've got is what they want.
