Please note: 

We think it is hypocritical to promote northern breeding programs and also provide packages from the south. But truth is, we lack any real northern supply to fill the vast demand for bees. Our own operation sells out very fast each year for northern nucs with acclimatized stock from our own breeding program. And while we still promote and will work very hard to build upon the northern industry,  we need additional bees for all the new beekeepers. And someone will provide packages to fill the huge void out there, unable to be filled by northern breeders like ourselves.

We will still be offering the same high quality over wintered northern nucs that we always provided. (See the queen/bees page for details.) But we will not be passing off package orders to other beekeepers as we did in the past. We already help many beekeepers with requeening situations of packages every year. So we figured we might as well just provide the packages once again, and work with those beekeepers by providing the same service we already do.

If you want northern stock and the benefits of nucs, please place your nuc order with us as always. Nucs are delivered in May and June. If you want earlier packages in April, we will be happy to provide this also. We want you to know that we will be here providing the same quality service to you long after the package sale is final.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
