You can try Hudson Valley Bee Supply in Kingston; they do get their packages from down south but seem to do good up here. Also Sam Comfort of Anarchy Apiaries (treatment free) has excellent bees too. DebDoes anybody know of where I can find good, healthy bees in the upstate NY area? (anything besides a swarm). Im looking to order bees in the fall, and have them shipped or picked up in early spring. Thanks, DP

Hudson Valley Bee Supply is located in Kingston, and opened two years ago. Megan Denver and Jorik are members of the Catskill Mountain Beekeepers Club....Jorik is the current president.Hudson Valley? Sam Comfort? who are they?
NY Blues, wildbranch, BMAC, Palmer across the lake, sqcrk, there are others I just can't think of now- and they are all on here regularly.
Don't know where Betterbee gets early bees from but M Palmer supplies them with some later on I think.
I like him also...if I was younger I would definitely hang out with him... he did a great talk at our Bee Club last month, really motivated some new Beekeepers to build top bar hives...Sam has TBH's in a number of East Coast States and is the only TBH Migratory Beekeeper that I know of. Good guy. Nice guy. Talented, creative. Some people think he is a whacko. lol I think Sam would say, "The World needs more whackos." I like his spirit.
