Pre-order FOR 2022!

Looking to replace lost colonies, or just start strong? 

Nucs are now on sale for spring pick-up.
Do it with winter-hardy Bare Honey bees!
All Nucleus Colonies include a winter hardy queen bred for mite tolerance and overwintering ability. 

Our 2021 colonies sold out fast, so don't miss your opportunity to start your own Bare Honey Hive. 

Each Honeybee Colony will include: 4 frames of bees, eggs, sealed brood, honey, and pollen. Each colony also contains 1 in-frame feeder to get your colony off to a strong start. 

All winter hardy queens are bred from overwintered mother hives. Because of the late breeding season in Minnesota, hives will be available for pick up from our  bee yards near: Stacy, MN or Buffalo, MN. 

*Due to the nature of agriculture's dependence on weather, the exact date of pick up will be announced as the date nears. In most years this date is set for the 1st weekend in June.

These Nucs are a sure way to start a strong honey producing colony. Where package bees can easily fail, nucs exceed expectations. The presence of a fully accepted queen and sealed brood grows into worker bees in time for the nectar flow. 

*Please note that your preorder is a reservation that we will begin to prepare in February, and cannot be canceled or refunded after January 15th.

Volume Discounts Are Available Starting at $185 for orders of +20 Nucs.
