New Bees for a New Year!

Bees for 2018 SOLD OUT!

You can reserve and be put on the waiting list but that is not a guarantee.

All nucs must be ordered through this form. It is the only way we have an official record of your reservation. If you do not receive a response the order did not go through.

We can set you up with a quality five frame nuc hive of bees. The cost for 2018 is $175. No deposit required. Fill out and submit the form and to get on the list. Nucs will be ready sometime mid-May to early June. It all depends on the weather.

Check out our Bee School 101 in October. And in May, Bee School 103. A special hands-on field day for new beekeepers. Conditions apply.

When they are ready to go to their new home RJ Honey will contact you. You will be asked to make an appointment to pick up your bees.

Here’s what you’ll need.

A complete one deep hive; bottom board, deep with five frames, inner cover, and top cover.

You’ll need a ratchet strap. No bungy cords. No pull straps. Really, a ratchet strap.

You may purchase ratchet straps at $10 each or have your hive body and bottom board stapled together for $10 when you come.

Bring your protective equipment.

Don’t wear dark clothing. Bees particularly don’t appreciate black.

If you have long hair, put it in a pony tail or wear it up. Bees sometimes get tangled and there’s no good ending to that story. A ball cap helps, too.
