I checked hives over the weekend and the bees are starting to raise brood on a bigger scale than i would have thought. They are bringing in nectar and pollen. The pollen ranges from a light tan to a dull gray. This time of year pay close attention to your bees, check them on warm days and feed if necessary.
Keep an eye on the website. We are going to add new equipment and lower some more prices. We plan to add top bar hives and 8-frame equipment and some other items. Get your bees healthy and have a great honey season.
We will start taking orders for package bees and queens December 1, 2013 for delivery in the first week of April 2014, weather permitting. Be sure to get your order in early; we have a limited number of packages.
In the meantime, the first 200 folks to order supplies via our online store will be entered in a drawing for a 3# package of bees with a marked queen. Thanks to everyone for your interest in our business, and we look forward to serving you through the winter and into the 2014 season!
