Our 2018 bee order is now open! New this year....we are offering Saskatraz queens in a few of our packages, and we will have a few Russian queens as well for our advanced beekeepers, besides our well-loved Carniolans and Italians.  Saskatraz and Russian orders are limited and will be first-come-first-serve to experienced beekeepers.  Carniolans are best for our climate/high altitude, and best for our first year beekeepers. Italians build up quickly in spring, but require twice as much honey stored for winter as other bees. Russians can be aggressive, but very well-suited to SW Colo. and may be more disease and mite resistant. Saskatraz are  bred from Canadian bees for mite control and tolerance.

To order, please click on the following link and you will be redirected to our order form.  You will be able to pay directly via PayPal account, by Credit Card, or you can send in a check by mail.

if you are unable to fill out the online form, you can print out and send the paper form below.

April 19th, 6:30 PM at the Florida Baptist Church. We'll have a fun demo of how to install your new package of bees, and how to do their first organic mite treatment to get them off to a great start. We expect swarm season to start early this year, and we'll talk about how to recognize the signs of imminent swarming and what to do about it and when. We'd love to hear your stories of catching swarms, we all learn that way! Call Nancy at 259-3899 for more info.
