2020 Bee Ordering Information

2020 Bee Ordering Information


  • We are still a go for package pickup on 4/18 but are taking it one day at a time.
  • I’ll likely be doing pickup at a different location to allow easy loading of your order and no contact in compliance with direction from health experts.
  • Remaining balance either electronic payment on or before pickup or prepayment via check by 4/6 will be required. Doing this will prevent the handling of cash or checks at pickup and still allow for social distancing.

We are ready to take 2020 bee orders! We have made some major changes this season with an online ordering system. We’ve tried to make this as easy as possible and welcome your feedback.

Prices this year are as follows:

  • #3lb Package with marked queens $130 ($100 deposit)
  • 5 Frame Nucleus Colonies in plastic pro nuc box are $200 ($160 deposit)

We have two options this season. You can either pay in full at time of ordering or pay a deposit with the balance paid in cash at pickup. We have had customers over the years ask for the option to just pay in full so they don’t need to bring cash at pickup or to pay in full with either a credit card or PayPal.

Pickup for packages and nucs will be at my home in south east Bloomington IL. Packages will be available for pickup 4/18. Nucs will be available starting late May. I fill orders based on the order deposits are received. All nucs will be inspected by the buyer at time of pickup so bring your veil!
