We raise honey bee queens and have them available for sale from roughly mid-May through August.
Our queens are generated from strong, locally over-wintered colonies that are good honey producers and are fairly gentle to work. Strong winter survival is the primary factor used in selecting our breeding stock.
We do also supplement our stock with queens from reputable suppliers.
We sell package bees (3 lbs of italian and Russian bybrid honey bees, or approximately 10-12k bees) with a separate mated queen. Each package is enough to start 1 complete colony.
These packages are typically on sale from December-March and available for pickup in late March through early May.
