Now Taking 2018 Nuc Orders

Its that time of year….time to start planning for 2018 spring nucs. We have already started a list for 2018 spring nucs, so if you’d like to reserve yours, please do so before we sell out. 

     

Our nucs are raised from our own line of hardy hygienic stock that have been carefully selected for honey production, varroa sensitivity, quality brood production and hygienic traits. When you pick up your nuc, it will consist of 5 deep frames, including bees, brood in all stages, honey, and some room for expansion. Pickup times happen in mid-May, and are subject to weather contingencies. We recommend transferring your nuc into a full hive as soon as possible after pickup, because nucleus hives expand very quickly. 

*A note for pickup: If you have a truck available to you, it is the best transportation for the bees, as plenty of air flow ensures a well-ventilated ride for the bees to their destination. If you plan to pickup in a car, you can purchase a netted bag from us for $5 each, this will facilitate airflow and help keep the bees cool.

Our spring Nucs are $140, which includes the box and 5 frames of bees, brood, honey, pollen, and room for expansion. No box return necessary.
