• Overwintered 5 frame nuc

We are currently taking orders for the 2020 season, thank you

Please read the following information before ordering:

All nucs are on deep frames, 9 1/8th inch, that will fit in a deep 9 5/8th inch hive body.  Frames are predominantly wood frames with black plastic foundation.  Nucs will not fit in a Warre style hive or a topbar hive.

Overwintered five frame nuc with a winter tested "Connecticut Carniolan" queen that was raised in late July/early August 2019 and overwintered in her nucleus colony. Each nuc will come in a waxed cardboard nuc box that is yours to keep, well ventilated, and with the bees screened in for transportation to your location. Each nuc will have a minimum of 3 frames of brood, 1 frame of honey/pollen, 1 frame that the bees are working on, plus mated,laying, and marked 2019 "Connecticut Carniolan" queen. Nucs will be ready for pickup at our farm in Franklin, Connecticut May 2nd or May 9th, dependent upon Spring weather conditions.

Nucs are Pick up only at our farm in Franklin. You will be notified of pickup dates and times by email(or phone if you do not have email) approximately 1 week prior to nucs being ready. Please expect the nucs to be ready on time. I will not know when they will be ready until 1-2 weeks before pickup date due to the extremely variable weather conditions in March and April.

50% deposit per nuc required with your order, balance is due at pickup(cash or check only at pickup). Deposit is 100% refundable before April 1, and nonrefundable after April 1. Please only order nucs if you are committed to picking up your bees. I am extremely busy after April 1, and I will not have time to find new buyers for your nucs if you cancel after April 1.
