    Default Long Lane Honey Bee Farm

    Ordered 4 queens May 27, received them June 2. Emails are returned promptly, phone service is fast and friendly. I hope the queens do good because I would love to give them my future business.

    I agree, they were able to ship me a queen for a hive of mine and she is doing a great job after a rocky start. (error on myside but has been fixed)
    Emails are always returned in a timely manner, and come to find out he grew up in the same area that I live in currently, small world. I will buy from them again, without a doubt.

    One of my four was superseded, probably missed a started cell. The other three were laying very heavy with a nice brood pattern last I checked. I will post a laying rate if I have time next week.

    I have one of their queens. Bought her to get a northern queen. I recommend buying from Long Lane without hesitation.

    That queen went into an observation hive and swarmed due to over crowding. Caught her and the swarm and put them in a nuc.

    One out of four is not a bad average for supercedure. I personally never cut out a supercedure cell because I'm of the opinion they know best and cutting them out may very well leave you queenless which is deadly as we approach fall.

    I bought a Lone Lane Queen last year to replace an Italian Queen in a package that was slow getting up to speed. Despite a slow start the bees made it through the winter and have brought some honey in this year. I checked the brood box on this hive a couple of weeks ago. This queen is on her second year now and is still laying a solid brood pattern.

    Both the queen and service were great and I would definitely buy from them again.

    Took my very first Bee Class at 'Long Lane'. Dave and his entire family are over the top nice. I would recommend Long Lane for anything related to Bees including their course offerings.

    I also have nothing but great things to say about Long Lane. Great products and friendly prompt service. A great example of what a beekeeping business should be like!
