Our “Mated” Queens have been bred and reared from our own best hives… They have been open-mated and are productive, calm and hardy. Your Queen can be Collected or Posted and will be supplied with a butler style cage for safe delivery.
From the end of May onwards… we hope to offer 5 frame nucleus (Nuc’s) starter colonies installed with British Standard National (DN4 frames) complete with temporary plastic travel box (Corex Box). They will include a laying queen, frames of brood in different stages and at least one frame of food. Nuc’s are the perfect choice for the beginner and also for existing beekeeper wishing to increase their stocks. You will require a Full-Sized Hive to transfer your Nucleus colony…so bear this in mind before purchasing a Nuc.
Our Nuc’s are carefully selected from our own breeding stock, with particular emphasis on good temperament, good honey production, low swarming rate & good over-wintering abilities.
Please Note…Our Nuc’s Cannot Be Reserved In Advance! …They are advertised when (and only when) a colony is ready. When this happens a Paypal “Buy it Now” button will appear below taking a Non-Refundable deposit…with final balance to be paid in cash on collection. You will be contacted via your Paypal email address to arrange a convenient collection date & time. Collection Must Be Within 3-Days of paying deposit.
All our Nuc’s are strictly for COLLECTION ONLY from North Shropshire SY12 Postcode…and a £50 deposit (Non-Refundable) will be required to secure your Bees…with the final £100 balance being paid in cash on collection. (Total Price £150 per Nuc)
