This year we will again buy nucs from Foothills Honey Company in Colton, Oregon. These are 5 frame nucs and they come in a cardboard box that you keep. They move their bees to Pollinate California almonds in January. During the two months they are down there the hive populations explode. At that time they split the colonies into nucs and requeen. Nearly all the queens are from Hawaii and can be either Carniolan or Italian. There is no choice.

You may order Nucs Now by submitting form below.

Price for 2023 will be $160 each.   

Payment must be received and paid in full by March 30th, 2023 

Resale of Nucs is Prohibited

Delivery is usually around the end of April and everyone will be notified with a date and time once we hear from Foothills.   The pick-up site will be in Longview or Kelso. If you are not able to pick up your nucs at the appointed time and place, you must plan to have someone pick up for you. Please let us know in advance if someone besides you will be picking up your nucs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by sending a message to:
