Only 1 More Week Of Winter Bee Kinds
Winter Hives
This has been a great year for winter-bee-kinds. Again, the response was great and beekeepers are reporting such strong over wintered colonies. But, we are nearing the time when we will end production for the 2017 Winter. We will only be producing these for 1 more week for this season. Of course, we'll start again in the fall for next winter. Make sure you have the quantity you need to replace your winter-bee-kinds for this year. Do not let your bees starve. Order yours now!

We've never seen such an early surge of hive orders this early in the year! It's exciting to see such an interest in beekeeping. Now is a perfect time to make your choices and secure what you need.
