PACKAGE BEE Pickup Update: No changes to report. Pick up date remains 4/25/20, but we will be (most likely) going to a curb side pick up only. That means the store will most likely remain closed so order your equipment NOW. Keep watching this update, and only come to get bees when you see the "all clear signal".
NUC Pickup Update: We will call you when nucs are ready for pickup.
All our online courses are 50% off in response to the coronavirus. We are assisting beekeepers who may have had their group classes canceled. Now take the beekeeping class of your choice from the comfort of your how, at your pace, in private according to your schedule.
