Nucleus Hive
Our Price: $50.00
Price is $250; "Price" here is the $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve your nuc.

This is an overwintered nuc with our own locally raised 2023 "Jersey Girl" queen. You will receive 7 medium (NOT deep!) frames of drawn comb with bees, brood in all stages, food stores, and a laying queen. The bees come in a brand new 10-frame medium that is yours to keep. The box will also contain 3 frames of new waxed plastic foundation. Nucs are well-ventilated and bee-tight for transport.

Nuc Pick-up Day will be on one day only at the nuc yard in Boonton Township in April, weather permitting. You must pick up your bees at that time or arrange for someone to get them for you. We will email you when we have an exact date.

Prospective purchasers of nucleus colonies must provide proof that they have taken a short course in beekeeping. We guarantee a laying queen for two weeks following pick-up. You should install your nuc as soon as possible following pick-up.

We have a limited number of nucleus hives available, but, if our colonies winter very well, we may have more than anticipated. If you are unable to place an order here, email us: [email protected], and we'll put your name on a waiting list.

The $50 non-refundable deposit reserves your nucleus colony. The balance of $200 may be paid in cash at the time of pick-up, or via credit/debit/PayPal beforehand. If you prefer the latter payment method, let us know via email to [email protected] and we will send you an online invoice for payment in March.
