Our Queen bees are raised from organic Ontario breeding stock selected for gentleness and disease resistance (hygienic behaviour). Like most Ontario bees, ours are descended primarily from the Buckfast, Italian and Carniolan 'races' of European Honeybees. This combination results in productive and gentle bees that are able to handle our sometimes harsh winters. We are a member of the ORHBS program for selection of healthy bees.
We never clip wings, use antibiotics or artificially inseminate
We can leave the queen unmarked upon request
Queens are marked white for 2021

Queen bees can be picked up, or mailed with Canada Post, Monday to Wednesday (to ensure they arrive before the weekend). Choose pickup or shipping during shipping method portion of the checkout process. Queens are sent via Canada Post Expresspost, and usually arrive the next day for orders within Ontario, or 2 days for other provinces. Please ensure you will be at the mailing address to receive the package.
Because Canada post is still not on schedule we cannot guarantee queens that are mailed and highly recommended picking them up in person.
