Nuc Size: Our five-frame colonies come in a wax coated cardboard nucleus hive box.  They are raised in Oregon, with fresh queens, from a highly reputable breeder.

Race: The queens in these nucleus colonies are selected by performance traits, not race. They are either hybrid Italian or hybrid Carniolan. We consider both race hybrids well suited for our climate.

Target Pickup Dates: In the past pickup dates have been the second & third Saturday's of April, but we will confirm this when we know. Beginning in March, we will provide regular updates on our website homepage.   Nuc's can be picked up as early as 8AM, but no later than 10AM. We will also update you by email. As we are dealing with livestock, all dates are subject to change. Any colonies that are not picked up will be opened to let them fly, and the pickup will have to be rescheduled for that colony.  This will incur a $10 handling fee.  

All nucleus colonies are available for pickup only. We do not ship nucleus colonies.

All livestock orders have a $10 cancellation fee until March 15, 2022.  Livestock orders cannot be cancelled after February 28. We use a highly reputable breeder, but we do not guarantee livestock sales.

Please provide an email address and phone number. We do not call customers regarding nucleus hive pickup schedule, but the number is a useful backup in emergencies.  All information regarding nucleus hive pickup schedule will be provided on the website and to the email address you provide.

When picking up your bees, you are responsible for your own safety.  You will be entering agricultural property, and you must wear appropriate protective clothing.
