And just like that, the 2022 beekeeping season is here! We have begun taking orders for our annual early to mid April nuc pick up at the beautiful and Historic Greenbrier Farms in Chesapeake, VA. It’s been a mild winter so far and our bees haven’t skipped a beat , they are revving up their engines and preparing for a superb honey flow throughout 2022. Visit our order page to reserve your nucs for this Spring. We sold out and ran out of stock quickly last year with the influx of new beekeepers so do not hesitate to get your orders in!

We are members of or are otherwise associated with the Norfolk Beekeepers Association, Tidewater Beekeepers Association, the Virginia Beach Bee Club, the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association, and Colonial Beekeepers Association.
Before we allow our beekeepers to pick up their bees, each nuc must be inspected by the State Apiarist to be sure the queens and worker bees are in good form exhibiting superb laying patterns and free of disease or mite infestation.
Each year, we contract to disperse a large number of honeybees in this region. We are privileged to offer these genetically superior, overwintered bees (NOT packages) from one of the finest apiaries in the US, the same bees provided by Brushy Mountain for many years. All bees are properly inspected and come with all appropriate credentials.
Here’s to another happy season of beekeeping and high hopes for an abundant honey flow.
