    Johnny Thompson at Broke T Queens. Phone number 1-601-562-0701. He has V.P. Queens Allegro (Italian) and Spartan (Carni), Dr. Harbo, and Jeff Harris queens. V.P. Queens Allegro works best (in the long run) for my area. You can read more about them at V.P.Queens.com. Good luck and hope this helps.

    Mike Haney Ridge Top Apiaries.. Has been a pleasure to deal with.

    7 Stands Bee Farm won't answer emails even to tell one that they can't fill an order. I can't recommend the Miles family.

    Thanks. I live 30 minutes from 7 stands. I have emailed them multiple times. They simply will not respond. Are they still in business?

    Check out Black Rock Farms in Cherryville, NC.

    He has a combination of VP breeder queens and local survivors. I bought 2 of them 2 years ago and have been very happy with them. He's good to deal with-very helpful.
