OUR GUARANTEE — We want you to be happy with our bees, and if you follow our nuc instructions, and you discover a problem with your nuc within 48 hours (2 days), you can schedule a replacement nuc or your money back. Thank you to all 2022 customers — nucs are all reserved for 2022 and May orders are starting to go out next week (May 19). Orders for overwintered mid-April nucs begin each year in January. For 2023, we will also have late April nucs with new 2023 Carniolan queens from a respected breeder of Carniolan genetics in California, to give customers an early option. Also, in 2023 there will be add-on options for 2 hour hands-on classes during nuc pickup on select dates (covering inspection, installation, nutrition, and mite control).
We offer nucs in Carlisle, Mifflinburg, and Nicholson, PA. We are inspected and licensed each year for bee and queen sales in Pennsylvania, and we are export certified for out of state bee sales. Repeat customers, veterans, beekeepers with disabilities and youth receive the volume discount price on nucs (contact us for discount code).

**When you pick up your bees, you will be given your nuc, and you have the option of inspecting it if you wish to do so (some foragers will fly off). If you are not happy with the nuc or hive for any reason, please let us know within 48 hours (2 days). If you are going to inspect your nuc or want the chance to look inside a hive (please schedule that with us in advance), please bring your jacket and gloves (new leather or nitrile gloves only, due to biosafety precautions). You are always welcome to contact us with questions!
