Queen producing hives are not treated with miticides.

We only sell marked and mated queens that are laying a quality brood pattern.

The queens are $40 each. They are available for local pick up at our family apiary in Glenshaw, PA. Willing to ship via Overnight Express Mail from our farm in Glenshaw, PA.

2023 5 Frame Deep Nucs - $170

Nucleus colonies (nucs) are made up of 5 deep frames of bees. Our bees are raised locally. Each nuc will contain frames of bees, brood, pollen, and honey. Availability is dependent on weather and bee growth but we estimate that they will be ready for pick up sometime between mid-May to early June 2023. 

You'll be contacted once nucs are available and we can work out a pickup time. Pickup will be in the evening and dependent on the weather. Nucs are sold in heavy-duty waxed cardboard boxes and are meant to be used as temporary housing. You should have proper equipment ready to house your new bees. 

We are licensed and inspected by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to sell bees. This means our hives are inspected yearly to ensure our bees are healthy and disease-free.


By purchasing you understand that once you pick up your bees that they are your responsibility and you are responsible for their care. Refunds will not be given once you have picked up your bees.
