We have been selecting queen mothers for Varroa resistance, ability to produce a good surplus of honey, and large brood populations during the spring, summer, and fall, while still being conservative on stores during the winter. Our queens have Carniolan, Italian, and Buckfast heritages. With these varying backgrounds, our queens range from a golden yellow, to dark brown to a tiger pattern. We do not select for color specifically, but it is nice to see all the different queens that come from the a single mother. This comes from the open mated queen and drone mothers.
To Purchase queens, please contact us for availability, pricing and ordering information.
Our queens will be available from mid May to mid September in limited quantities.
