Bee pack pick up:  saturday 03-23-24, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm at the store

Our Nuc pick up date details will be available soon...

We are partnering with Beez Needz to provide our local beekeepers with packages and NUCs for 2024.  These sales are based on pre-orders only.  Sorry, but we do not have live bees available for sale on a walk-in basis.

If you missed our pre-order period, please contact Beez Needz directly.  They will have nucs available throughout the rest of spring and summer.  Give them a call at (336) 431-2339 for details and availability.


Honeybees are delicate and perishable.  WE ARE NOT ABLE TO HOLD BEES BEYOND THEIR ARRIVAL DATE or DELIVER BEES once they have arrived. 

We do not offer refunds for bees that go unclaimed or do not take to their hive once you get them home. 


For more info on booking your bees through us, here are the details…

Explanation of terminology:

Bee Pack: This contains 3# pounds of worker bees and a laying queen. They are in a box and you need to supply all the rest.  They are similar to day-old chicks in their need to be situated as soon as possible into a full sized hive for best success.  Have all hive supplies and materials in place and install your pack into your hive the same day you pick up your pack(s).  You may want to have sugar water, feeders and pollen patties or powder available for them so they have everything they need to start drawing comb once they're in their hive body.

Bee Nuc: This is short for "Nucleus Colony". One Bee Nuc includes workers, a laying queen, 5 frames of drawn out comb, eggs, brood all in a box that looks like a mini hive. These ladies are ready to hit the ground running! If you're a new bee keeper, this is the way to go for best success since they're already partly established.  Like with packs, you'll want to get your nuc situated into a full sized hive as soon as you get home because they need the space to expand the colony ASAP.  It's easiest to do this on day one.  As with packs, you may want to have sugar water, feeders and pollen substitutes ready to offer them while they get estabished.
