Current Bee
Notices for



NUC pickup day of May 6th, 2022 HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

May 12th is new pickup date. Same group times.

Trucking issues have interrupted the scheduled delivery date.  A new date will be posted as soon as we know it. Please stand by and we appreciate your patience and understanding while we try to orchestrate this delivery day!

Our customer list has been divided up into 3 groups with an hour pickup window each. Pickup will occur at the farm located 2 miles south of the store at 4960 S. 36th Street Climax, MI 49034. Please enter the gravel drive-way, proceed over the hill into the valley and someone will help you line up. You do not need to exit your vehicle if you don't want, we will load your bees. If you would like, feel free to inspect or pick out the nuc you would like. Bring a bee suit/jacket and gloves if you want to get into the bees. We will be calling everyone over the next several days to confirm. Please stick to your time slot, we have over 300 nucs getting picked up this year, so we are trying to make everything run as smoothly as possible. If you have not heard from us by May 4th, please call the store at 269-665-4300.

PLEASE check this notice often between now and the delivery date to see if there have been any changes. There are a LOT of things that need to happen just right in order to make this date occur and sometimes we need to make a change. 


PACKAGES will arrive at our STORE on April 28th, 2022. You can pick them up anytime between 10am and Noon. If you ordered packages from us, please call us and let us know you saw this (269) 665-4300. We will also be calling everyone that doesn't call us to confirm.

"We purchased our bee supplies from a local feed store in March, when it came time to set everything up in May, we had question's. We called the feed store and they told us they couldn't answer our question's because "no one that works here knows anything about bees." Then we found you guys and you were SO helpful, even though we didn't buy our product from you. We will definitely be using you for all our beekeeping needs from now on. Thank you so much for your help and not making a new beekeeper feel like an inconvenience."

"We loved the classes! Thanks so much for making them packed full of information for those with very little time. We especially loved that we could call and speak with someone who knows bees any time we have questions after we've finished the classes. Oh, and the field days are great!  Thanks again for helping the beekeeping community and those of us that are new. Your store was the only place we actually felt welcome as new beekeepers"
