We'll do our best to deliver your bees and any other items to you outside, in the parking lot.

Covid-19 Considerations: When you arive, please wait in your car.
We are working hard to abide by restrictions in place for Covid-19, so we aim for package pickup to be handled without your entering the shop.

If you need other supplies, please order and pay online ahead of your visit, so we can have your items ready to hand out to you when you come for your bees. Similarly, if you have questions, please call ahead of your visit to minimize your time at the shop. If you cannot, we'll work with you to get you what you need.

As always, the sooner you pick up your bees, the better off they'll be.

If you will be UNABLE to pick up your bees before end of day Thursday, please let us know ASAP!
