    Welcome,
    I was at the Orland apiary last spring for the big shindig. Really enjoyed it.
    Are you guys selling any open mated VSH out of Orland this year, or just Hawaii?

    Dan, We will be selling the VSH Italian and Carniolan out of Corning's Queen Haven and Olivarez Honeybees out of Orland also sells VSH. The spring shindig in Orland is very impressive and we were there in 2010 and it was great to see all that goes on there. Ray Jr., Tammy and Dan do an excellent lunch and field day.

    Thanks, Klarene
