Bees for sale.
We have sold all our nuc colonies for the 2020 beekeeping season. We will have more available from November 2021.
Bees for sale! Ready for pick-up from approximately early November onwards.
Are you just starting out beekeeping and need to fill a new hive with bees? Did you lose a colony of bees as a result of over-wintering issues and wish to replace it with another? Each year we offer a limited number of bees for sale in the form of nucs (short for nucleus). Our nucs are sold as 5 frame full depth nucs and include a marked queen we have reared ourselves locally. We expect these nucs to be available from early November onwards however this can change as a result of weather conditions. Therefore we keep our customers regularly updated on their nuc/s progress.
Preordering your nuc is the best way to ensure your will receive your bees early on in the season. Nucs are supplied on a first order-first fill basis. Nucs are collected from Bywong NSW around sunset so that all the bees from the colony have returned to the nuc. Finally, the queen will also be marked for easy identification. For biosecurity reasons we only allow brand new, never been used hives to be brought onto our property. If you require a nuc transportation box there is an additional $20 charge to cover the reusable box.
If you wish to preorder a nuc please submit an inquiry via our contact store here. Please note we charge a $55 deposit on booking. In contrast, if you purchase through our online store prior to submitting an inquiry you will automatically be charged the full price.
