We sell Vermont raised queens each season. Our queens are an Italian/Carnolian mix with VSH and Minnesota Hygienic traits. We breed only from our heartiest, best producing queens with exceptional brood patterns and hygienic characteristics. The Carnolians are best known for their hearty overwintering properties, and the Italians for their docile nature and hygienic behaviors in the hive. Queens are available throughout the summer season. Call for availability.
