FAQ

When should I order my Bees?

Ordering your bees early in the year will make secure that you will have bees coming by spring. The bees will be ready in the order that they were received. We start accepting pre-orders for Nucs and Packages the beginning of the new year or earlier. Subscribe to our newsletter for update when they become available.

When should I expect to receive my bees in the spring after I ordered them?

-Bee packages should be available for pick up the first week in April. (**weather permitting)

-Nucs should be available the 4th week in April. (**weather permitting)

**Weather permitting- When making Nucs we need to have good weather. Our split hives will be raising new queens for themselves and if there isn't decent weather, we may end up with mediocre queens because they haven't a good chance to make their mating flights and it can be very costly to replace them. We want to offer our customers the best chance at keeping bees. But with nature, it is never on our time. So we do our best.

When we are producing packages we are relying on our queen suppliers to send us the queens we place in the packages. This gives us a date we can rely on so the customer can make their pick up.  But...there are times when the weather interferes, and deliveries may be delayed. They as well need good weather to let their queens have time to take their mating flights. If they don't, and don't have the right circumstances then we would end up with mediocre queens. Please be patient, we want to give you the best chance at keeping healthy bees and be successful.

Where is your honey from?

All of our honey is produced by our wonderful hard working bees right here in Utah. We have our hives spread out all over Salt Lake, Davis, Morgan, and Weber counties. Our bees aren't foraging off of one specific plant or flower, but they are gathering nectar and pollen from your backyard flowers to the fields all around you. This is what gives our Utah Honey its delicious unique floral flavor.
