Just the Bees

**Bees and frames only ** You will need your own hive to transfer them to. This includes:

  • Mini colony of bees with their queen
  • 3 frames of brood
  • 1 frame of honey
  • 1 frame of pollen

Available around the 1st week of May each year.

This is a single level, fully functioning hive with some room to grow. It includes:

  • An established colony of bees
  • 10 frames, including frames of honey, pollen, and brood

This is the same as a single level hive, but with a larger colongy and a second deep box with 10 frames.
