Producing colonies of the highest quality is something we are immensley proud of and aren't prepared to compromise on. So please be patient when waiting for your bees.

Spring Full Colonies should be ready for collection from Late June onwards, but that is wholly dependent on suitable weather for early queen matings and continued colony expansion. This schedule is a guide only, collections can sometimes run into July or later if weather conditions have been poor.

Overwintered Full Colonies should be ready from around late April but sometimes into May or later, depending on sucessful early buildup which can be curtailed by poor weather conditions.

Although deposits paid are non refundable, we may be able to adjust, delay or rollover your order to the following year.

Our full working honey bee colonies are strong, resilient, vigorous and hard working. With adequate forage & reasonable weather conditions they should produce a sizeable honey crop in their first year.

They come housed in a high quality Polystyrene Hive comprising:

- Open mesh floor with varroa tray & entrance block.
- Brood chamber with National Hoffman frames and dummy board
- Clear polycarbonate crownboard
- Roof and strap.

Our Colonies fully comply with DEFRA, NBU and BBKA Guidelines. All our bees are regularly inspected by the Bee Inspector.
Responsibility for the Health and wellbeing of the bees in your colony pass to you upon taking possession of your new colony.

Please note: All deposits are non-refundable unless we are unable to supply your order. All Orders must be paid in full prior to collection. By placing an order you are accepting our terms and conditions. At the time of ordering you will be asked to add a contact telephone number, this is important and will only ever be used to communicate about your order.

PayPal is an easy and secure way to buy online. You don't need to have a PayPal account as Paypal also process payments by debit or credit card.
