My numbers are on track and I have a bit more leeway as far as the number of nucs I have available for sale. The queens have been carefully selected for for hygienic anti veroa mite resistance. These are five frame honey bee nucleus colonies that come with a sturdy weather resistant corrugated plastic nuc box. No exchanges on boxes or frames.

Pick up times will be weather dependent, but I anticipate that they should be ready by the end of April 2022. I will notify all customers the exact dates when we get closer.

I will be doing my annual rout North back too Washington State after almonds, starting at my pic up location Stop #1 Eugene Oregon,  Stop #2 Vancouver WA, Stop #3 Tacoma WA, Stop #4 Burlington WA. Final Destination Ferndale WA. 

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.

Main Pic up 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 pick up only.

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.

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.

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 heart ache 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…
