More Information

Our Langstroth nucs are on self spacing frames with brood at all stages (eggs, larvae & sealed brood) and food stores and a marked Queen, blue for 2020. Our nucs are mostly headed with Buckfast queens. All our bees are gentle and are suitable for beginners and the experienced beekeeper.

We are now fully allocated for langstroth nucs for 2020

All our bees are treated for varroa and all nucs / colonies are fully inspected the day before they leave us.  We have achieved our accreditation to the DASH scheme; Disease Accreditation Scheme for Honeybees, this is a an accreditation set up between the NBU (National Bee Unit) and the BFA (Bee Farmers Association).  As with all our nucs, we comply with the guidelines set out by the NBU and Defra.

Spring Langstroth Nucs are normally ready towards end May although this is weather dependent.  We understand that most of you will be excited to receive your bees but we do ask for you to be patient as until the season fully kicks in it is very difficult for us to convey time scales. As soon as your nucleus of bees is ready I will get in touch to let you know. Your nuc will be ready, bursting at the seams and be ready to be transferred into a full size hive when it leaves us. To give you an idea of how the years differ last year, 2016 and 2015 saw our spring nucs go out in middle May, 2014 our spring nucs went out in early June, 2013 they were not ready until the end of July and in 2012 they were ready mid June.

We are often asked by customers if they can inspect their nuc on the day of collection. Unfortunately, this is not possible as we close the bees up the evening before collection or very early the day of collection. If you were to open the nuc and inspect it on the day of collection you would lose too many bees which would compromise the quality of the nuc. We do guarantee all our nucs for a short period of time and offer you full telephone support should you need it. We will always do our best to offer advice and help you to sort out any problems you may have.

6 frame Langstroth nuc in correx box £255, plus delivery if required*

Delivery cost to any UK Mainland address is approx £48 per nuc and is guaranteed next day delivery before 1pm*.

*Collection is always the better option for your nuc as it is less stressful to the bees.  If you do want us to deliver your bees we do so at your own risk. Please contact us to discuss ways we can help if you live a distance from us and would prefer to collect.  

Many thanks

We request that all buyers register their new colonies with Beebase the National Bee Unit website. It is designed for beekeepers and also supports Defra, WAG and Scotland's Bee Health Programmes along with the Healthy Bees Plan, all of which help to protect and sustain our valuable national bee stocks. There are no costs involved with registering with Beebase, instead it gives you, the beekeeper, the security to know that should a bee health problem arise in your area, your local bee inspector will notify you about it, and if necessary come and inspect your colonies, free of charge.  By buying your bees from us you are giving us permission to pass your details on the NBU if they ask for them. If you don't give us permission to pass you details onto them in the event they request them then please let us know at the time of ordering.

Please note that all deposits are non-refundable unless we cannot supply your order however if you do have to cancel we will issue you with a gift voucher to spend with us so you don't loose your money.
