Note about 2020 Heritage Bee Nucleus Starter Colonies: We may have a limited number of 2020 nucs for sale after June 15, 2020. We are taking the year to substantially grow our own beekeeping operation and will need all of the bees to support this organic sustainable growth. Check back on June 15th to see the numbers available. Thank you and bee well.
