These packages will been made locally in Layton, UT and won't been shipped from out of state on a truck for long distance traveling. You can't go wrong choosing between a package or NUC. But with a package it can be fun to see the process and witness the hive grow from nothing, into a full strong hive. Or maybe you just need to add bees to a vacant hive from the previous year. Either way with a package you also can save a little bit of money. Bonus!
