We're so happy to see that you are looking ahead... We will not be taking orders this year for bees from outside the area. We may have our own NUCs available in May if you are interested, however we will not be taking orders until April. We have a few recommendations, if you are interested in placing an order to purchase bees and pick up your own bees:
White Mountain Apiary - Whitefield, NH
Warm Colors Apiary - S. Deerfield, MA 
Red Barn Honey Farm - Northampton, MA

Hillside Apiaries - Merrimack, NH



Updated 1/21/23
The Brattleboro Area Beekeepers' Guild will have NUCS available in May. We will have a limited quantity of 5-frame nucs headed by northern-raised queens for $225.


We will also have Russian packages for $190.

No deposit is necessary. Just /text/call to reserve. (802)380-9330

Please remember that there are many NUC and package
producers. Feel free to browse the web, ask friends who they have had good results from and know what you are purchasing. It's also important to have all of the paperwork required by your state.  We have enjoyed providing this service in the past but are doing what we can to help local beekeepers become more sustainable on their own. 
We encourage you to begin raising your own queens. There will be an all-day workshop in June if you are interested in learning more.

Queen Orders
We have also been raising our own queens for several years and offer our own stock for sale. These Russian/ Carniolan queens are open mated, in our own yards throughout the Monadnock Region. Our home yard is in Swanzey, NH if you'd like to stop by to learn more. The queens are available June through September, are marked and are proven layers before being offered for sale. Please click on the heading for the order form.
