My Store location in Bellingham Washington. 

I will have nucs available. They will be ready to go for pic up starting the second week of May. BY APPOINTMENT.

I still have a number new 2024 nucleus colonies available. They can be ordered online for pic up here at my Bellingham WA location or if you have a large enough order I am open to meeting up in and around the Seattle area for a gas fee that is dependent on the distance. Cash or card at time of pic up is available as well. sorry I don't do checks. 

I have decided to open up a limited number of 2024 NUCS for sale. The queens are primarily free mated Carniolen and have been carefully selected for for hygienic anti veroa mite resistance. These are five frame honey bee nucleus colonies that come inside a corrugated transfer nuc box. No exchanges on boxes or frames.

Important Information for Colony Buyers:
Drop Off Locations

By placing your order you acknowledge that you as the customer will be required to inspect the nuc box on the day it is picked up. You also acknowledge that any negligence on your part while handling the bees during inspection or in their care after they leave the premises or delivery site of the seller, nullifies the seller of any financial responsibility. As The seller, if the queen bee fails within the first 7 days I will replace the queen with a healthy queen free of charge. Documentation is required. 

Main pickup location is Ferndale WA. For the safety of my apiary, the address will be provided directly to buyers after they place their order. All Sales are final. No refunds will be issued once sale is completed unless as the seller I am unable to provide a 5 Frame Nuc box as ordered. For local pickup only, or be at one of my DROP OFF LOCATIONS (see below). It is recommended you bring a mesh draw string laundry bag with you for each Nuc you order. Safety first. If you are in an enclosed area they help prevent unwanted stings while driving. From past experience leave children and pets home if the bees are going in the car.

My History and Expertise

We have been beekeeping since 2010. I came across my first feral hive in June of that year living in the wall of a barn. It was a new hive and I was able to extract it and house it in a proper hive. I discovered the hive less than 24 hours after seeing the documentary Queen of The Sun with a friend of mine. I know a synchronicity when I experience one and I was was hooked there and then. The rest is history. I have been slowly building my business and learning new skills ever since. I am thrilled and honored to begin selling starter hives to new or old beekeeping enthusiasts.

Training

Please, for all of you new beekeepers take my advice: For the well being of the Honey Bees in your care, take seriously the sacred responsibility of this endeavor. Training with an experienced beekeeper is wisest decision you can make.

Good training can save the lives of your hives and reduce the heartache of unnecessarily lost hives.

I do offer season long apprenticeship programs. Please consider signing up. I would be delighted to work with you.

However if not me, work with someone else.
 

Thank you, and Bee Well…
