Looking for a strong, healthy honeybee colony that has been overwintered in Michigan? Look no further than our 5 frame deep nucs, complete with 2 or 3 frames of brood of all ages, as well as pollen/honey frames. Our nucs have been carefully curated to ensure the health and vitality of the bees, with a fifth frame that may not be completely drawn out, which helps reduce the chance of the bees wanting to swarm from a small nuc hive.

Our apiary genetics are a combination of Cory Stevens VSH stock, stock that originated from known feral Michigan colonies, as well as stock coming from other Michigan honey bee queen producers that raise queens from Michigan survivor stock. This means that you're getting a diverse, strong colony with a mix of genetic traits that have been proven to survive and thrive in the unique climate and environmental conditions of Michigan.

Whether you're a seasoned beekeeper or just starting out, our honeybee nuc colony is the perfect addition to your apiary. With a proven track record of survival and a diverse genetic makeup, you can rest assured that you're getting a top-quality colony that will produce healthy, delicious honey for years to come.
