Absolutely not! Bee package pricing is usually released in February. But, by that time, many lists are filling rapidly! If you know that you will be starting bees next spring, or will be expanding your apiary, being on our list early means avoiding the crush after the New Year begins.
It means that you have right of first refusal when bee package pricing becomes available. We take names and contact information, but no payments, until then.
To be on our list, we need your name, address, phone number and email, as well as how many packages you are interested in. That’s it!
Once package prices are established, we contact you with the information. At that time, you will decide whether or not to move forward with your package order. Some decisions will need to be made (like type of queen), then payment in full completes the process.
There is a ‘Terms and Conditions’ document that you should read (scroll down). Also, information on this page, as well as the T&C document, gets updated, so be sure to check back. You can email us with questions, too! Chances are, someone else has the same question, so don’t be afraid to ask! In addition, I will email the group with helpful tidbits, like what the schedule will be for picking up the packages, etc.
As always, feel free to contact us, if there is anything else you need to know.
Sold Out for 2017
Planning to split your over-wintered hives? Newly mated queens will be available at the same time packages are. Requeening a split can involve careful timing, so it is recommended that you contact us to reserve a queen and discuss the particulars of your hive.
After Bee Package Day, we will have more queens available every three weeks or so. Check back for frequent updates on availability and pricing.
These situations rarely occur, but when they do, we're all on the same page. Payment for your package(s) is deemed acceptance of these terms.
