All from our organic 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, and our long term selection goals include varroa tolerance. We are part of the ORHBS program for selection of quality bees.

We are licensed and inspected Queen & Nuc producers (a copy of our Queen and Nuc permit is available upon request)

Your nuc will be packed in a reusable box for transport and can be picked up in Hamilton. We will send you a reminder email prior to your pickup date with all the details about when, where, and how to safely pick up your bees. 


We never clip wings, use antibiotics or artificially inseminate the queens.
