We offer nucs in both deep and medium 5 frame sizes this year. Due to the non-standard nature of medium nucs and some of the complexities involved with them, they are the same price as deeps. Very few people request nucs in this manner and it is a courtesy we are trying to extend to them. Our nucs are made up as 4 frames of brood and honey with a 5th frame for growing room and assisted temperature control in transit. This 5th frame is usually empty drawn comb or a fresh frame the bees have begun to build on. The frames are housed in a disposable EZ nuc box, so no worries about returning equipment to us or paying a deposit. Nucs come with a 2019 mated Russian queen. Please place your order early as these are a high demand item and sell out fast. Additional information will be communicated to you closer to May for exact dates of pick-up.

available for pick-up in late May/early June (depends on mother nature)


"What is a Nuc?"

Strangely enough we are asked this all the time. A "Nuc" or "Nucleus" hive is basically a mini version of a fully functional hive. A Nuc will have frames that are fully drawn out with comb and will have stores of honey and pollen, along with frames of bees in different develepental stages. Many beekeepers prefer getting nucs for a number of reasons. First being that it reduces much of the risks associated with package bees trying to get started in a new hive. If a beekeeper starts a new package and weather conditions turn sour or they don't have adequate nectar source, it will likely die in the first week/s. Nucs don't have this issues as they already have food reserves in them. Another great advantage is that nucs tend to be from providers in your local area. That means that the bees are from a heritage that have endured in your local area and are typically well suited to the seasons.
