Now with 5 Pickup locations:
The B Farm has thriving bee packages for sale in the Northeast. With online ordering and five pickup locations, we make it easy to find honey bee nucs for your apiary. Read on to learn more about our operation and how we help amateur and professional beekeepers alike bring home successful honey bee nucs in the Northeast.
In 2005 we began to produce and sell large quantities of nucs for sale to sideline and hobby beekeepers in the northeast. Having experience in buying and installing large numbers of package bees, we knew about the limitations of package bees and were aware critical timing events associated with shaking packages and baby nuc set up for bred queen production.
The growing demand for package bees was evidenced by delivery times which stretched into mid and late June in many areas. Creating honey bee nucs for sale in the Northeast is a natural extension of raising bees for honey production or pollination. Our goal from the beginning was to produce a high quality product.
We produce our nucs in wooden boxes with a full sized hive entrance so we maximize bee population without danger of overheating. We use a feeding system similar to what we use on our full sized hive, so each nuc receives the same amount of feed. We also provide our customers with the same VSH/ BREEDER stock that we use to produce over 50,000 queens for honey production and pollination each year.
There are no signs of slowing down our production of honey bee nucs for sale in the Northeast. We are extremely proud of our locations in Billerica, MA; Long Island, NY: Syracuse, NY; Cattaraugus, NY; and Williston, VT. For 2021 we expect to have over 10,000 for sale nucs available making us one of the largest for sale nuc providers in the nation. We offer a 6 frame nuc which offers the potential for splitting under certain conditions. They also offers a faster growth curve than 5 framers after installation, resulting in more honey production and stronger pollination hives!
