We are taking pre-orders for March 2015 delivery. There is a $10 deposit due when ordering. The cost per package will be between $110- $120. Payment will be due January 2015. 
 
Once again we will be heading down to pick up our packages. We built a custom enclosed, climate controlled 'bee wagon' to ensure their safety and comfort on the long ride. The bees were packaged, loaded and arrived back in New York in less than 24 hours minimizing stress on the bees . The quality and condition of the packages definitely reflected all the extra effort.
 
These bees are sourced from a small family run apiary in Georgia where they have been selling packages and breeding queens for generations. Their bees are genetically diverse and are bred for honey production, hardiness and temperament.  They carry the best traits of Italian, Carniolan and their local stock. The queens and bees come from the same apiary so you can expect them to have the same southern drawl. 
 
These bees are for pickup only in Kingston, NY

Our nucs are coming from a fourth generation beekeeper in Pennsylvania. Their queen heritage is derived from grafting Minnesota Hygienic Queens. They also breed from within their own stock as they pull survivor queens that excell in harsh winter environments. They also use breeder queens from Latshaw’s and queen cells from Dave Miska as well as others to promote genetic diversity. All of their queens are naturally mated.

Nucs will consist of a newly mated queen on brood of her own heritage. The five deep frames will consist of two brood frames, two honey frames, and one frame of foundation that can vary from brood to honey. This frame is used by the bees for expansion and is important to keep the colony balanced while growing in their nuc box.

Please consider ordering early as we have a limited supply and expect to sell out quickly. Nucs are for pickup only in Kingston, NY
