    Like he said, Koehnens are good. I'm not sure on where you'll be able to get them though.

    R Weaver is where I've gotten the ones I bought for the past few years. http://www.rweaver.com/ I've liked what they sent but didn't notice any difference between the "All American" or "Buckfast". Keep in mind I've only bought 3 of each for the past couple of years though. Their communication has been good as have their promised delivery times.

    Learning2Bee, not sure exactly when... but there's a company in Cedar Rapids area who sells Koehnen queens early in the year and then switch to locally raised/mated ones farther into the year. Ebert Honey (www.ebertqueens.com).

    Adam Ebert! The Cairn's that I have received the last few years from him have done well. Service was great. You do have to call him and wait for call back

    Yep, that's them.
    Typically if you text him he'll text right back. Like most of us he's a busy guy and it takes a few seconds to fire off a text and a phone conversation might take several minutes.

    My first queens were from Kona queens (carniolans) in Hawaii which served me well, and last year I added some russian queens (caucasian) from Strachans....They don't advertise them but they are breeding them
    Good luck...
