All from our Ontario stock specially selected for gentleness and disease resistance (hygienic behaviour). Our breeding stock is derived from a mix of Italian, Carniolan, and Buckfast genetics.
We are licensed Queen & Nuc producers.
We are now taking orders for 2018; nucs will be packed in a reusable box for transport and can be picked up in Hamilton. We contact you to schedule a pick up time after you place an order. You can also arrange to meet us in Toronto to pick up your nuc (dates TBD)
If you would like the nuc delivered to your apiary in the Golden Horshoe area, you can select that option for an additional $100 fee. We will deliver and install your nuc, and you get an hour of our time for a personalized lesson/Q&A session. If you are ordering more than one nuc for delivery, just select the delivery option for the first nuc($300), and for each additional nuc choose the 'pickup' option ($200).
Nucs will not be mailed except through special arrangements, do not select a shipping option at checkout.
You may also choose to get your nuc on medium langstroth frames, for those that use all medium boxes (deep are the industry standard).
