Just wanted to say Strachan gets nothing but top ratings from me! As a new beek I had a couple of emergencies over the last few weeks and they were more than helpful getting me the queens I needed.
On both occasions they were last minute and even though I called during their peak time and hadn't reserved a queen prior to this they were able to find an extra for me. They even offered to have them shipped that day but I chose to drive the 180 miles round trip both times just to make sure the girls were less stressed and also wanted to see the place. On the second visit I had forgotten to mention I'd like a marked queen and the only one available was unmarked but the guy that does the marking was in the office when I was there so he took her in the back, marked her and i was back on the road minutes later.
They definitely get two thumbs up from me not to mention both queens are doing great.
