Queens will be available from approximately late March through July or early August.
We typically offer Carniolan and VSH Italian queens from a Northern California breeder with which we have had consistently good results and high rates of acceptance. We may also offer locally raised queens when available. Cost will be $27 each for local pick up only. We do not ship. We offer price breaks if you need 10 or more at one time. Call or email to be added to our list for queens and we will notify you when our next shipment arrives. Please note that due to high demand we cannot hold queens.

5 frame nucs (9 1/8" deep frames): $160 ~ These nucs will be queened with various available queen stock. We hope to have these nucs available from early to mid April. This is the best option for a new beekeeper using a deep hive body. Queens will not be marked.
