Overwintered Honeybee Nucs (May pickups)

Regular price $0.00 $220.00 Sale

Orders are now being taken for 2021 spring season!

New for 2021, We believe in selling high quality bees so we now guarantee our nucs! Meaning 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, pay in full or put a deposit down and pay the remaining balance at pickup. 

Overwintered nucs are our survivor stock bees with a bred queen in a five frame cardboard nuc that has survived the winter. These queens were bred in late summer and are ready to become “producing hives”. They have two frames of 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. 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 ! 

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 will wait to make sure she is still a quality queen before selling. Doing so is weather dependent so a pickup time is not available until spring arrives. 
We raise our own queens from our northern stock of survivor bees. These bees live in western New York year round and never leave.

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, 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 sometimes we can’t rush the bees so patients is key !

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.


Thank you for the wonderful review ! We pride ourselves in making quality nucs for our customers so this review means a lot to us !
