W. Fisher Bee Farm will be selling spring nucs in the Spring 2014 Season.
Taking orders now, Deposits will be accepted starting in January. All nuc orders must have 10% down to be considered a firm order.
The Price will be $130/nuc, with price breaks as follows
33 to 56 $125
57 to 104 $115
Over 104 $100
Over 800 $97
Prices are subject to change; this is the best I could figure as of November 25th, 2013.
The nucs will consist of:
1. A freshly mated queen, on brood of her own heritage.
2. 5 Deep frames consisting of: 2 Brood,2 Honey, and 1 frame can vary Brood, Honey, or Foundation for expansion.
Bees can change occupancy of frames as they see fit.
Our queen heritage is derived from over 5 years of grafting from Minnesota Hygienic Queens. We also breed from within our own stock as we pull survivor queens that excelled in our harshest environments. We also buy breeders from Latshaw’s and other renowned breeders as we see fit.
Currently I am planning on two deliveries in April, around the first and third weeks. Delivery dates will change as the season progress depending on weather in Florida.
There will be NO FRAME EXCHANGE. I will not accept frames towards purchased nucs.
A Deposit per box will be necessary if you wish to leave or premises with
nucs in our boxes. The deposit will be $40/box for our Styrofoam boxes, and $20/box for our custom wooden boxes. To be determined at pickup. Personal checks will be accepted for deposit on boxes.
As an alternative to transporting in our boxes, I will have cardboard nuc boxes available for sale at pickup for anyone who wishes to purchase them. Please let me know in advance if you wish to take advantage of this to make sure I have plenty on hand. They should be $5/cardboard nuc.
Nucs Can be picked up at either our Dade City, FL location or Lewistown, PA
All nucs to be inspected by buyer before loading, all sales are final once bees are loaded into buyer’s transport.
Delivery can be negotiated at cost to buyer for orders over 160 nucs, if I have truck and driver available. April is the start of my pollination season, a truck and driver may not always be available.
To qualify for discounted rate all bees must be paid for and picked up at the same time.
To pay on pick up a certified check/cash is necessary, if you wish to use personal check
it needs to arrive and clear my bank before pickup, preferably at least 2 weeks.
