supply 5-frame nucs of calm local (Northumberland) bees. All our nucs
are raised in our own apiaries; we do not buy bees in. Happily,
many people have become interested in bees and beekeeping recently;
this has resulted in demand for our bees sometimes exceeding supply.
2012 has been extremely challenging for bees and beekeepers, but we
have been able to meet our customers' needs. If you would like
bees in 2013, please let us know, as we normally have a waiting list;
we will contact you in April or May when we will have an idea of how
many will be available. We strongly encourage prospective buyers
who are new to beekeeping to attend a course in the early spring before
they acquire their bees. There is much to learn, and keeping bees
is more demanding than it was in previous generations.
Prices are likely to be between £150.00 and £200.00, depending on availability, size of colony etc.
If you would like to go on the waiting list, please email with details of your phone number and the type of hive you plan to use.
