The honey bees for sale are properly mated queens from known and purchased Queen Mother stock that are grafted and mated locally. We verify the new queens laying patterns before selling them to provide a quality product.
If the honey bees for sale that you are purchasing are a 5-frame NUC, we offer different ways you can do this to allow for any budget.
- You can do a “frame swap” for the most economical purchase, where you come to the farm and pick up your bees swapping our 5-frames right into your own 5-frame or 10-frame box.
- The next level up includes an EZ NUC that you can pick up your bees in, simply close the entrance, tape the lid and you are on your way.
- Lastly, we also build custom wooden 5-frame NUC boxes (unpainted) that you can pick up your bees in. We will put a screen across the entrance, bring a ratchet strap and you are on your way. Don’t forget to move the bees into a 10-frame box and paint that box after you do.
We do not have honey bees for sale from our bee removals!
The honey bees that come to the farm from bee removals are quarantined for a period of time to allow us to monitor them for any pests or diseases as well as temperament. In most cases, we have to re-queen these colonies to help dilute the africanized traits that are common in our region; therefore. they are not for sale.
