Yes they are and have been Hardeman for at least a decade. Good bee, good people at Hardemans (and Kelley). If you ever get the chance to deal with Hardeman you'll be glad you did. Top class quaility 3 banded Italians, nice people good bees for warmer climates.

Ditto, I've been down to kellys to pick up some big equipment that would have had to be trucked. Great people, very helpful and gave us a tour of the plant. Worth the stop if you happen to be in the area. Was about an 8 hour drive (one way) but the wife got a small vacation out of the deal so she was happy.

I also have purchased from Kelly, enjoyed the tour, and they are fine people there.
I will always be a customer of Walter T. Kelly Co.

I've bought queens and equipment from Kelley's for the last 32 years. They are good to do business with. As mentioned they don't actually raise the queens.
I think they all came from Hardeman's also and I've done business with them as well. They were fine to do business with also.
