We offer quality 5 frame nucs that are available for pickup the beginning of May in MN or late april at our Texas location. Each nuc will have a 2017 proven laying, young queen grafted from proven stock. They are grafted off the MN Hygienic line. Each nuc consists of 5 frames of brood/pollen/honey. A 50% deposit is required to secure your order. No frame exchange.
We do not out source for our nucs. We manage our own hives throughout the year and are the ones who put the nucs together.
We start splitting our hives in mid-March and put these nucs together at that time. We attempt to have a 4 year frame rotation within our broodnests. The benefit for our customers is that the majority of the combs being placed into the 5 frame nucs are 4 years old and newer. (4 frames are drawn comb and 1 will be foundation which is typically a drawn out and has sealed brood by the time the customer receives the nuc). A ripe queen cell from the MN Hygienic line is placed into the nuc 24-48 hours after splitting. Before the customers receives their nuc/s, we will have confirmed several times that the nuc is queen-right and has a suitable laying pattern.
1-2 nucs: $140/ea
3-9 nucs: $130/ea
10-29 nucs: $125/ea
30+ nucs: $120/ea
There is a $20 refundable deposit for each plywood nuc box that leaves our property.
We accept check, cash, credit, and paypal.
