    Default New River Honey Bees in West Virginia

    Has anyone ordered from them before? They popped up on a Facebook page as having Caucasian queens back in January. I missed the pre-order for mated queens trying to research the company, but they are now taking preorders for virgin queens. Also have a few other types like Buckfast, Mite Maulers, and others. I guess they are about as local a supplier of specialty queen bees as I can get here in Virginia. Might have to try a few, but if someone has input, I'd love to hear it.

    I had ordered from Dan O'Hanlon in the past. He is retiring, and recommended Jason at New River. I have had good experiences with the Mountain State Group, and would trust Jason to be a good breeder.
