The B Farm is proud to offer this Partner pickup Location in Auburn, AL.
Jesse's Girls Honey is partnered with and is offering 5 and 6 frame nucs to pickup at his location! Place your order today before they are gone!
A “NUC” is a newly started beehive consisting of a wooden box holding the frames of bees, comb, food and brood. This is one of the two typical ways most new beekeepers get started. Some purchase packages of bees consisting of 2-3 pounds of bees and a new queen. We prefer to offer an actual young colony with an established, laying queen, drawn comb, brood and food. This gives you a 4-6-week advantage over the package bees bought at the same time. Since our main flow of nectar in Alabama is a relatively short window (March-June), you will be most successful with a well started NUC that you pick up in April or May (or even June!) compared to a good quality package secured at the same time.
Submitting and paying for your order means you agree, understand, and will comply with the information contained in the document. This information is extremely important! Ordering mistakes will be your responsibility.
