Thank you for your interest in our queens. I'm excited about offering our queens for sale again this year. As you know I am very particular about providing quality queens. I've put together my "QUEEN DREAM TEAM" consisting of others that will be raising queens. Myself and two other highly respected and experienced beekeepers are working hard raising queens that are for sale now. Buying online is the easiest and fastest way of making sure you get a queen.
The queens that we sell are not a specific "race" but rather queens that have been raised from selected northern colonies that we are proud of. Our queens are raised here in Illinois. As producers we are in compliance with the Illinois Department of Agriculture's rules and regulation regarding raising queens. All hives from which we are raising queens have passed inspection.
I have never been able to produce enough queens to keep up with the demands for our queens but this year looks promising with the help of my "Queen Dream Team".
