Nucleus hives (nuc hives) are what you need to start a bee hive. Spring is the optimal time to buy a nuc and as such we only supply them around this period. Our nucs contain four or five frames of brood and a brand new mated queen. They are easier to handle, especially compared to starting with an established hive. Nuc hives are also a good starting point for beginners as you can learn while the hive grows. This is because it expands rapidly into a full established hive and our packages contain everything you'll need for your expanding hive.
We will also be supplying queens this year. It is vital to re-queen your hive every year to keeping the hive from swarming.
Nucs are now available for order, in time for spring.
