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.

OUR BEES ARRIVE BY TRUCK , UNDER NETTING, IN 5 DEEP FRAME PRO NUC BOXES, READY TO BEGIN THEIR NEW LIVES CHEZ VOUS!

Here’s to another happy season of beekeeping and high hopes for an abundant honey flow.

Our Bees

Our bee farmer has been breeding and refining his hives for 40 years. The bees are an Italian-Carniolan hybrid with what they are calling “canine” hygienic behavior. They rip Varroa mites apart! Our mated queens are the result of years of research, dedication and hard work. Selected from the strongest stock and monitored throughout their development, our queens are young, healthy and laying. This is one way we are able to provide some of the best nucs available anywhere. The supplier is on the board of the American Honey Producers Association and works closely with Cornell Dyce Labs for Honeybee Studies, providing both bees and information for their research.

WHY PURCHASE OVERWINTERED NUCS?

Nucleus bee colonies established during the foraging season minimize colony loss by correcting queen issues. A queen who is already mated and laying will make for a much stronger hive going into winter. The young bees are also much less aggressive because they’re loyal to their queen.
The following spring, the hive will likely quickly be robust enough to split (keep it or sell it!) to prevent swarming, break the mite cycle and STILL produce a honey harvest.
Our nucs are among the very best Italian-Carniolan hybrids in the US, have superior genetics for hygienic behavior, attitude and honey. Overwintered in northern SC, it is possible for us to have them ready for delivery to our buyers in April,  ready to rock and roll.

OUR NUCS

Our nucs are very robust 5-frame deeps that likely need splitting within a month AND will produce a honey harvest this year with proper beekeeping practices. We are transporting the bees in new weather resistant, lightweight Pro Nuc boxes (durable and recyclable) which are yours to keep. No frame exchange is necessary.
