Leave yourself time around the end of the month of April if picking up packages, and late May - early June if picking up nucs because of possible date changes, we unfortunately won't be able to work around travel, vacations or other issues you may have.  While we do everything we can to alert you to any date changes, it is ultimately your responsibility to know when the pick up date is.

We keep you informed on the date via the front page of our website beginning 4/1/.  Check it one last time before coming over. Because of possible date changes,  we recommend only customers within a few hours drive to pick up from our location.

Meanwhile, check out our beginning beekeeping workshops - online now!
