A nucleus of honey bees on 5 National frames will give you a good start in beekeeping and allow you to follow the development of the colony to its full size on 11 frames. We have honey bees for sale that are good tempered, productive, and ideal for those starting out in beekeeping. Our queens are either Buckfast or raised locally from selected stocks.
Local Honey Man bees arrive with a mated honey bee queen, bees, frames of brood in all stages – eggs, open larvae, and sealed larvae – and stores of pollen and honey. The bees travel in a lightweight transit box that will be useful when collecting future swarms.
We supply overwintered 2021 honey bees which will grow to become productive colonies early in the year. Later in the season, we will have 2022 honey bees and Buckfast queens for sale.
Supply is dependent on Spring colony development and the weather. Please bear in mind that honey bees are livestock and that delivery is variable. We will update you regularly regarding a collection or delivery date. The collection is from our offices only on Saturdays between 7 am and 9 am by arrangement.
Please note when placing an order you will be added to our waiting list, once your order is ready we will contact you.
