Our list for packages is full. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, just email us your name, address, phone number, number of packages needed. Requests will be filled based on availability. There will be no guarantee of queen type for the waiting list and orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
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, through the end of June. Check back for frequent updates on availability and pricing.
These queens will be marked, and available at the same time packages are being distributed.

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.
It’s never too early, our Bee Package List often starts filling in the fall of the previous year! Bee package pricing is usually released in February, but by that time, many lists are close to being full. 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 and what type of queen(s) 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 confirmed (like type of queen), then payment in full completes the process.
There is a ‘Terms and Conditions’ document that you should read (see the link in the "Terms and Conditions" section, above). It is very important that you read this document, as payment for your package(s) is deemed acceptance of the terms and conditions listed. 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 Bee Package 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.
