We are now taking reservations for package bees! First come first served!
You can place your order for package bees by looking in the "Local Offerings" category, under "Bees & Queens".
Our offerings this year are as follows:
|3 lbs. bees w/ Italian queen||Mid-March||$105||
weather is especially variable in March, so these packages are for folks prepared to install bees in inclement weather
|3 lbs. bees w/ Russian queen||Early April||$110|
|3 lbs. bees w/ Carniolan queen||Mid-April||$120|
We ask for a $55 deposit per package at the time you place your reservation, and will ask for the balance shortly before delivery.
DELIVERY DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE!
WE DO NOT SHIP PACKAGE BEES. These packages are for LOCAL PICKUP ONLY.
For some suggested suppliers of package bees for shipment, please check the link for "Bees & Queens" in the yellow horizontal strip of our site.
The packages of bees travel here by truck, having been carefully transported directly from the producer. They usually arrive sometime on Friday, and we post hours for pickup on Saturday and Sunday. If the bees arrive early enough on Friday, we also make them available for pickup Friday.
If you cannot pick the bees up on the weekend they arrive, they will keep for an additional day or two. If scheduling is an issue, please contact us and see what we can arrange.
We're finalizing the last details and expect to start accepting reservations for package bees in just a few days from now. Please check back ... we'll post a news item when we do!
We will be closed this week. Monday, 1/5/2015, we will resume regular hours: Monday, Thursday, Friday, 2-6pm.Happy New Year!
