Packages are $110 each and include a MARKED queen.   Reserve now to hold your space.  Packages need to be prepaid at time of reservation.  Packages sales are first come first serve.  We will cotinue taking package orders this spring until we run out of availability (which could happen soon).

Call the store at (919) 542-3353 or email us at to reserve packages, NUCs, or the first round of queens!  All staff members have been trained to take reservations.  Payment needs to be made in advance to reserve bees and can be done by either calling in a credit card number, mailing a check, or stopping by the store.

Beekeeping Supplies

Please see the attached .pdf of our updated supply list for the 2019 beekeeping season.  Feel free to use this list to help you plan.  For larger orders, some customers find it useful to use this supply list as an order form and submit it to our store in advance of pick up so we have an opportunity to pull supplies together for you.
