Honest Honey will be selling nucleus colonies of bees (nucs) from end May/June 2023. These will be available on national, commercial or langstroth Hoffman brood frames. The cost of each nuc includes the frames with brood, food, bees and a laying queen. At least 3 frames will contain brood. All queens have been raised in the Chilterns from local stock and are adapted to the climatic conditions of the area. All queens are marked with the colour indicating year of birth (red for 2023). Queens are not clipped unless specifically requested, which can be performed for an additional £3.
