Taking Orders for Nucleus Colonies for Spring of 2017
Produced by the Huff Honey Farms of Troutdale PA with new queens raised from untreated survivor stock, these bees have proven themselves for honey production and a gentle temperament with “ankle-biter” characteristics. The nucs are on medium combs and are available as 5-frame nucs, $100. They will be available for pickup on May 13 and 14 at Sky Barn Apiaries, 321 Roe Road, Willseyville NY. The orders are secured with a 50% deposit, balance due at pickup time.
For beekeepers who prefer want a direct relationship with the producer these bees are also available directly from the Huff’s. The Huffs are responsive, communicative and knowledgeable about bees. I will be happy to haul directly-ordered bees to Willseyville for pickup on May 13 or 14. I’ll charge $5.
