Queen Rearing Class
WE ARE SOLD OUT FOR 2018!
We are now taking orders for nucs available in Spring 2018.
A nucleus colony or (nuc) is the core of a bee colony which consists of a mated queen and 4-5 frames of bees and brood of all ages. They are used by many beekeepers as a starting point for production colonies. Most of the time nucs are transferred into larger 7, 8, or 10 frame hives, but some beekeepers prefer to keep nucs in a wooden 5 frame garden hive and simply add hive bodies and honey supers.
Our nucs are actual colonies, and they are not just frames of brood which were put together at the last minute. We will provide you with a nice vigorous colony of bees with a verifiable queen. We invite you to inspect the nuc before you leave our farm with it. All nucs will be a corrugated nuc box, so you will not be required to return any equipment to us.
Due to difficulties associated with shipping live bees, Nucs will be available for PICK UP ONLY beginning in mid April 2018 through the end of May. Please select the pick up date below that best fits your schedule.
Special pricing and courier services may be arranged for large orders. If you have any questions please click the Contact Us tab at the top of the page.
NOTE: We work very hard to maintain our schedule, but production of bees and queens can be hindered by weather and/or other conditions beyond our control. In worse case situations, pick up dates may be delayed but we will give you as much notice as possible if there are any changes to our schedule.
We are now taking orders for Spring 2016.
For over a decade, our family has focused on breeding the best hygienic bees and queens that money can buy. Our Italian queens are bred from mite resistant VSH breeder queens. These girls are famous for their hygienic behavior, their ability to winter over, mite and disease resistance, and excellent honey production. We allow the queen time to become mature and hearty before she is removed from the hive, and you can rest assured that every queen we sell is verified for quality before it is shipped.
