We pride ourselves on producing nucs of the highest quality, this is something we aren't prepared to compromise on. So please be patient when waiting for your bees.

Spring Nucleus 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 Nucleus 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.

Please check our blog for regular updates on the development of the nucs.

All Nucleus colonies comprise a young mated laying Buckfast Queen marked with the appropriate year colour, 3 to 4 frames containing brood at all stages, with plenty of bees on Hoffman self-spacing frames. There will be adequate stores of pollen and honey in the additional frames sufficient for at least 1-2 weeks to allow for establishment.

Nucs may be offered on 14 x 12 National Brood frames. Please contact us to check availability.

Our Nucleus Colonies fully comply with, and exceed 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 you Nucleus colony pass to you upon taking possession.

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.
