Update 5/23/23: we have 1 nuc left! These are the deep frame size.
Whether you're ordering your first bees or adding more hives to an existing apiary, a nucleus "nuc" colony is a very popular option. A nuc is a fully functioning mini hive, with a laying queen, various stages of brood, honey, and pollen. Starting with a nuc means you have a "leg up" on the process, because it is already an established bee colony. Our nucs come with a marked, fresh laying queen, 5 frames of brood, honey, pollen, and a reusable plywood or plastic nuc box that's easy to carry and transport.
Nucs are available for pickup only at our location in Minonk, IL. We do not ship nucs!Another note: live bees are for local pickup only and are priced accordingly, so there is no 10% pickup discount like our other products have. If you are ordering other items in addition to bees, please place a separate order if possible. Contact us with any questions. Thanks!
