A second benefit offered to association members is the ability to order Nucleus Colonies (Nucs) at a reduced price. These five frame Nucs are produced in Yuba City and Modesto California using open mated daughters of a premium New World Carniolan Queen.

Nucs are an ideal way for a new beekeeper to get started, or to expand your apiary. You just transfer the 5 Nuc frames into an 8 or 10 frame deep and you have a growing colony with a laying queen and hatching brood on day 1.

We have met our ordering quota for 2017 and no further Nucs are available through our supplier.
