Overwintered Honeybee Nuc Deposits OR Full Payment (May pickups)

Regular price $0.00 $120.00 Sale

Now accepting deposits ($120) or full payments ($220) for 2021 spring season!

Overwintered nucs are our survivor stock bees with a marked bred queen in a five frame cardboard nuc that have survived the winter. The most important part of starting a new colony is having a great queen and we won’t sell it until she has proven herself. These queens were bred in late summer and are ready to become “producing hives”. Our bees live in Western New York year round and never leave. 

These nucs have two frames of honey/pollen essential for hive growth and two are growing brood (baby bees). The last frame is left open for the hive to build on and expand. This is the only way we can offer a nuc in the month of May! For now, quantities are limited but once spring arrives we will know better how many can be available so make sure to check back when we sell out! 

We will know if the queen bees are still thriving and ready to sell when the weather breaks. We will contact you when spring arrives, to schedule a pickup time.

We believe in selling high quality bees. We are so confident in our product that our 2021 nucs now come with a guarantee! If you have a problem within 2 weeks of receiving your nuc, we will either replace or fix the problem at no additional cost to you. 

Price is $220 per nuc with two options of payment:
1. Put a deposit down ($120) now and pay the remaining balance at pickup ($100)
2. Pay in full ($220)

*We cannot ship the nucs - this is a pickup by appointment only.*

Pickups are weather dependent, but we always shoot for the end of May. These are created colonies of bees, not packages. They will not be sold unless we have given them approval of a well laying queen and brood pattern. We pride ourselves in our work and can’t rush the bees, so patiences is key for a quality product! 

Need some equipment to go along with your bees? We can help! Check out our equipment and kits that you can purchase online, or at pickup when you get your nucs.

Home grown over winters nucs

Love Love Love them. I made a big mistake in the beginning of beekeeping. I purchased snow bird bees. You know the ones that over wintered in FL. Had 4 lost three. Hard lesson to learn. I now have over wintered bees from WNY. 8 hives and they are doing great and will be getting 2 maybe three more in the Spring. Love Bee Country , they have superior bees.

Overwintered bee purchase

It is the best decision I could have ever made. I purchased bees that overwintered in FL from another company. All but one hive died during our western NY winter. Hard lesson but well learned. I found Bee country through some friends. I placed my order and off to the races I went. I’ve already put my order in for Spring 2021. These bees are so healthy and Bee Country has a well earned reputation. They do a great job from answering questions to taking care of there bees.

Best nuc we have out of a many

Just wanted to say Thank You for the fantastic Nuc we got from you this spring, it is already surpassing 2 we got elsewhere and is keeping up with our established hives. With the really cold spring, I was a bit worried but this hive just exploded when it got warm and is now our strongest hive. Half a super already and chock full of stores and brood on the 4th of July. Only nuc we've had with marked queens too.
