Bees For Sale

The bulk of our 5 frame nucleus colonies are raised on Standard National or 14 x 12 frames although we are able to supply a limited number of nucs on Langstroth frames by special order. Please contact us for further details. 

All are supplied with a laying queen with eggs, open and capped brood over at least three frames and at least one frame of food. 

We are now taking orders for the approaching season. A £50 deposit will reserve your nuc.  Colonies are available for collection only and we will contact you to arrange a convenient collection date as the time approaches.

We aim to have our overwintered colonies ready from mid-April and spring colonies from around May/June.  These  target dates may change because the build up of a colony is subject to many variables especially our unpredictable UK weather and the availability of local forage. This can occasionally result in unavoidable delays. 

If possible, we encourage you to visit us and inspect your bees before collection day, particularly if you are new to beekeeping and want to get a feel for things. This can be arranged during the week prior to collection.

A deposit to secure your nuc order can be paid in advance via our online shop’s PayPal link. The outstanding balance then becomes due for payment prior to or when you collect the colony.

Please note that we cannot refund deposits.
