After you’ve decided to help the environment in one of the easiest and fun ways possible, give us a call or send us an email with your information.
Depending on what time in the year we meet, we’ll either be reserving one of our new hives being created, providing you with one we already have set up ready to go, or getting you on our waiting list for one of our upcoming hives. So what does all this mean?
Well, the one key thing about this type of business is that bees are only available in the spring and summer and that they are a limited resource. We have to plan in advance on how many hives of each type we are going to create for the upcoming year. We will start most all our hives in the summer using our own locally bred bees, nurture them, winter them over, and then deliver these colonies in new hive equipment the following spring to client’s homes.
This makes getting signed up early crucial! While we can build hives, stocking them with bees is the issue. Once we’re out of bees, you will be placed on the waiting list for one of our first hives of the next year unless a split or swarm becomes available during the course of the summer. You also want to remember that getting your hive as early as possible in spring is important so your bees will have as much of the season as possible to store up honey for the following winter.
Once your hive is ready we’ll and install it on your property for your family to enjoy! Because we deal almost exclusively with bees that we’ve bred locally, your bees will have survived a winter and be ready to hit the ground running.
