Nucleus Colonies for Sale
Spring nucs are sold out for 2017. We anticipate selling locally grown nucs in July & August.
Nucleus colonies provide beekeepers with a fresh vigorous colony with a new laying queen that is united with the bees on combs with brood and stores.
Nucleus Colonies will be available on April 15 & 16, and on May 13 – 14. These bees are a variety of cross-bred origins. They are produced by the Huff Honey Farm in central Pennsylvania.
The Huff brothers select their breeding stock from healthy overwintered northern bees that are productive with a mellow temperament and varroa resistance. Huff bees are known for their “ankle-biter behavior”.*
The nucs are shipped in nonreturnable corrugated plastic boxes.

*note: “Ankle-biters” bite varroa mites and small hive beetles, not beekeepers.
