Nucs, Packages, and Queens

Come to our Open Hive Field Day Event - April 27, 2019 12pm-4pm

Visit our beekeeping blog for instructions on installing packages.  More topics coming soon including how to install a nuc and equipment to get you started!

We are now taking orders for NUCS, PACKAGES, and QUEENS for Spring 2019. 

NUCS and PACKAGES are $140 if ordered before March 31st, $150 after that.  Update! As of April 1st, all orders are wait list.

QUEENS will be $35 this year

Please Call 541-934-9101 or Email 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 (Location and date TBD).  We can also help coordinate group pick ups for other locations, like we did for La Grande customers last year.
