Specifically designed for newbies our newbee nuc package provides one year of support from Bee Country a long with the nuc. As we grow we try to help as many beekeepers as we can, purchasing this nuc package puts you on the top of our list. Bee keeping can be an overwhelming hobby to start and sometimes you just need a little help. We’ve been helping people become backyard beekeepers for 10+ years and love watching people have success. Ordering this package automatically gives you a first chance at our hands on classes as well, (we will call before the class is announced to the public)
*at least one nuc needs to be a new-bee package to receive our help.
All nucs are our survivor stock bees with a newly bred queen in a five frame cardboard nuc. Two frames are honey/pollen essential for hive growth and two are growing brood or baby bees. The last frame is left open for the hive to build on and expand. We believe in making nucs from “parent colonies” rather than putting a package of bees into a nuc and selling it as is. The most important part of starting a new colony is a great queen and we won’t sell it until she has proven herself. We raise our own queens from our northern stock of survivor bees. These bees live in western New York year round and never leave. We believe migratory keepers mess with the bees too much and it effects the wintering of the bees themselves.
Our passion is bees and teaching people about bees, we will try our best to create the most enjoyable experience for you and guide you along the way as you learn.
If your interested please get in contact with us. We do require a deposit to ensure you are serious about the purchase. Total cost for the nuc is $200 plus tax. The final $100 is due when you pickup the nuc. Please make checks payable to Bee Country at 321 Geise road, Darien NY 14040.
Please leave your information along with your phone number with your order so I can call you when the nucs are ready! 🐝
We offer support for new customers just beginning their beekeeping adventure. We offer classes and I run a page called bee Country new-bees on Facebook to answer your questions throughout your first year.
We are located between Buffalo and Rochester, both being about a 45 min drive.
Need some equipment to go along with your bees ? We can help, check out our equipment and kits that you can pickup when you get your nucs.
*We cannot ship the nucs so we only offer pickup only.* pickups are weather dependent. These are created colonies of bees not packages. They will not be sold unless we have given them approval, with a well laying queen and brood pattern. We pride ourselves in our work and sometimes we can’t rush the bees so patients is key !
