Spring 2018 Waiting List - Now Open - Taking Orders for April 2018 Pickup

Honey Bees and Supplies are normally available for pick up on weekends. We often offer a Beekeeping Basics group class the day of pickup. Unless otherwise directed, the pickup location will be at our main bee farm which is in Somerset Texas, approximately a half hour southwest of San Antonio.

Pickup dates, times and address will be provided via email

Nuc is short for Nucleus, which is basically a starter colony of bees on deep frames that fit into a Langstroth style deep hive body aka brood chamber.
Our bees are treated for Varroa* Mites and Tracheal** Mites using
OAV prior to pickup dates.

* Varroa Destructor - (Varroa spp.) is an external parasitic mite that attacks the honey bees and is considered the number one cause of colony collapse.
** Tracheal Mites - (Acarapis woodi), are microscopic parasites that spend most of their lives inside the breathing tubes of adult honey bees.

     The Nucs will come with a mated VSH (Varroa Sensitive Hygiene) Italian Queen and five frames consisting of a balanced mix of the essentials; brood, pollen, nectar and honey. These frames are placed in a temporary transport box but will need to be transferred into a standard size 8 or 10 frame deep box as soon as possible.

      Or if you need the hive with bees installed ready to place on your property, please view the various Hive Kit choices we offer. These honey bees are of a gentle nature and top quality genetics.

We also offer "Beekeeping Basics" group classes. These are typically held the afternoon of bee pickup dates - Contact Us for available dates and details or click here Honeybees 101 for details.

The nuc boxes are used for transporting your bees home. We offer multiple options. Please select from the temporary plywood nuc boxes as shown below (these have a $25 refundable deposit) or a complete Hive Kits with Bees including boxes with deluxe top and bottom,  or select one of our Apiary Starter Kits. Please review these choices then click the Add To Cart button to place an order.

You will have the option to add the number of Nucs you would like when you get to the next page after you click the "Add to Cart" button. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like additional information. We will send a notice with all of the needed information a week or so in advance of the scheduled pickup date as well as the physical address to be used on a given date.

Since we must make all necessary arrangements and commitments to secure everything needed to fill orders, from equipment to bees to queens etc., all cancellations for refunds must be requested within seven days from the time the order is placed.
Returns for bees: Since bees are livestock and are subject to diseases, pesticides, temperatures and other factors that effect their health, and we have no control over the conditions the bees are subjected to once they leave our yards, we require a notice within 24 hours if there is any health issues with the bees.
Returns for equipment and gear: If there is any issue with any equipment or gear, please let us know within seven days of the receipt of the product and we will arrange for an exchange.

     The Nuc is our most popular hive starter option. The Nucs contain all the components of the colony. Starting with a mated and laying queen bee, frames of brood (eggs and larvae in multiple stages) with nurse or "house bees", frames of pollen, nectar, and honey with workers or "field bees".
