Queens and Package Bees
Meadow View Beekeeping has all the bees you need.
2019 Package Bees are sold out but we'll have queens available all season. Thanks for the business.
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 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 for delivery in late March through early May.
