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.

We are trying a new supplier for our nucs this year. 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 30 nucs for sale on a first come, first served basis. If there is greater demand we will try to secure more.

Nuc ordering for 2019 is now complete.
