We are now taking orders for NUCS, PACKAGES, and QUEENS for Spring 2019. As of April 1st, all orders are wait list.

QUEENS will be $35 this year

Please Call 541-934-9101 or Email apricotapiaries@gmail.com to be placed on our list.  Let us know your name, phone number, email, and the number of nucs, packages, or queens you would like. 

We aim to have our nuc and package orders ready by mid-late May.  Timing of availability is dependent on how good our spring weather is for queen rearing.  We hope for some 70+ degree days by the end of April so our queens can get some mating flights in. 

As we have done in the past, we will be providing a central Oregon delivery with pick up dates of May 18th and May 25th, from 7-10am.  If it is a warm day please plan to arrive on the early side.  We are calling customers to schedule their pick up date, with priority given based on order date.  We are hoping to be able to fill many of our waitlist orders but we won't be able to confirm availability until the week of May 20th or later.
