All of our overwintered nucs have now sold are we are now taking orders for the 2nd batch of nucs. This 2nd batch should be ready for end of May, throughout June and maybe into July, depending on the season.
We still have our last remaining overwintered Nucs available, probably for the next couple of weeks. These should be ready in April. Once they have sold out, we will be selling the next batch of Nucs for May/June.
We are now taking orders for Queens on the website. Dont get too excited though as they will be a while before they are ready. Carniolans and Buckfasts should be ready first, End of April, with the other strains ready in May.
Straps and Weights to help against the wind.
Looks like more gales are on the way so we have ‘battened down the hatches’ ready for the winds which seem to be picking up. It is a sunny day so must be the calm before the storm.
August is a key month for Varroa Control and all the colonies and nucs are getting treated for Varroa over the next few weeks to make sure Varroa numbers are low. This ensures strong, healthy colonies during the Winter Months ready for the Spring.
We still have a supply of Buckfast Cross Queens available for sale. Free Delivery and should be with you within 2-4 days (Weather Dependant).

ok, so its only June, but we are already in full flow, preparing our stocks ready for next Spring. These will be ready for pre-order in September onwards.
the New Zealand nucs have been building up nicely and the bees have been checked by FERA and give a clean bill of health. You will be contacted shortly to arrange collection of your bees.
