    I got a booming package of NWC from Oliverz in Chico this April. These bees have already filled 2, 10 frame boxes. One box had some drawn comb the other was new plastic frames.

    Highly recommended, so far.

    Oliverz is pick-up only and Koehnen has queens only.

    History
    In 1966 Shannon Wooten went to work for Homer Park, near Palo Cedro in Northern California. Thus was his introduction to beekeeping.

    Homer was an excellent teacher, strict on how to do things the right way, and a knowledgeable beebreeder. Without realizing it, Shannon became a beekeeper. And of course there was the boss’s daughter, Glenda, already a beekeeper, grafter and superb organizer.

    In 1974 Shannon and Glenda moved on to their own business, taking what they had learned from Homer and Lois, and what they’d learned on their own, and Wooten’s Golden Queens came to be.

    Today, the business has ten full time and four part time employees, produces 25,000 queens, 4,000 three-frame nucs, and rents about 3,500 colonies for almond pollination. The truck fleet consists of one-ton flatbeds with booms, a Baby Freightliner, a Peterbuilt, 5-wheel trailers and crew cab pickups. Most hives are relocated over five times a year.
