There is a $3.00 additional charge for each package with a Russian queen. Packages are currently scheduled for pickup on Saturday April 1, 2017 or Saturday April 22, 2017.

As always keep in mind that the supply of packages, nucs and queens is limited and orders are taken on a first come first served basis. So order early!

Package Bee Warranty- All package bees are sold with an “as is” warranty. Once they are loaded on/in your vehicle they are yours. This is a standard livestock warranty as applied throughout agriculture, because the seller has no control over how the packages will be transported or cared for after they leave their possession. If the queen supplied with the package bees is dead we have a limited supply of replacement queens available for this eventuality. If we have depleted the supply of replacement queens we will give you the contact information for our package bee supplier and they will mail a replacement queen directly to you. This allows for your receipt of a replacement queen in a more timely fashion.

2017 Early Queens


Individual queens are available for requeening colonies or doing splits. Italian queens are $25.00 each and Russian queens are $28.00each.

Queen orders MUST BE PLACED by March 20, 2017 for the first pickup date and April 20, 2017 for the second pickup date.

Early Queens are currently scheduled for pickup on Saturday April 1, 2017 or Saturday April 22, 2017. However, the weather conditions in North Georgia may not cooperate with our schedule. As a result pick up dates may be subject to change.

2017 Nucs


This spring we will have 5 frame nucs available in mid-April with VSH Italian queens. The nucs are being sourced from South Carolina and will have a 2017 mated queen, 2 - 3 frames of brood and 1 - 2 frames of honey. The cost of each nuc is $170.00 with an arrival date in mid-April. The actual pick up date will be confirmed as we get closer to the beginning of April.

We will also have a limited number of local 4 frame nucs available for pickup beginning in late-May with a 2017 VSH Italian or Russian queen. The local nucs are $160.00 each. The nucs will have a minimum of 2 frames of brood and remaining frames of stores and all frames covered with bees.

Nuc Warranty - All nucs are sold with an “as is” warranty. Once they are loaded on/in your vehicle they are yours. This is a standard livestock warranty as applied throughout agriculture, because the seller has no control over how the nuc will be transported or cared for after they leave their possession. If the queen is dead in your nuc we will replace it.
