A second benefit we try to provide to association members is the ability to order Nucleus Colonies (Nucs) at a reduced price. 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.

The 5 frame nucs will be supplied in non-returnable corrugated plastic boxes. The queen will be a Minnesota hygienic hybrid. We will have at least 50 nucs for sale on a first come, first served basis. If there is greater demand we will try to secure more.

Online Nuc ordering has begun and will continue until February 15, 2020, or until sold out.
