Honey Glow Farm will not be offering package bees in 2014
5 frame nucs are available from late April. With their advantage of having an established 2014 queen and all stages of brood, they are ready to be installed as the heart of your colony.
Single deep colonies are available late April, early May with established 2014 queens.
