Packages bees are our recommended way to get started in beekeeping. They are simply a box with a queen and workers that you dump into your own hive. We want you to be successful so we offer demonstrations, classes, and support to help!
Don’t forget, we also have beekeeping equipment! If you are new to beekeeping, check out our Beekeeping Classes!
Bees are pick-up only. For the health of the bees, we do not ship packages. Bee pick up is the last Saturday in April, see the Bee Day page for schedule and information. Also check the Bee Day page for information on date or time changes due to weather. Bee day is a fun day filled with workshops and all things bee related!

- A Queen Bee: Separated in her own cage hanging from the top of the inside of your package. Queens are not marked.
- Worker Bees: Approximately 12,000 bees in a 3lb package
- Feeder Can: A can of syrup to feed your bees in transit
- Pollen Patty! Put this feed supplement in your hive to help get your bees started right

Customers must examine the contents of the package bees and queens for satisfaction when they pick them up. We can help you do that if you need it and we will exchange any queen or package not to the satisfaction of the customer. Leaving the premises with the bees constitutes customer satisfaction with the order. We will do our best to help you be successful, but as with any other livestock, we cannot guarantee the health of the bees once they have left our facility!
