Nuc Hives

Purchase a NUC Hive / What is a NUC?


Our NUC’s consist of a total of 5 frames with 2 frames of brood capped and eggs 1 frame of food stores (honey and pollen) and 2 drawn frames with some food stores. A "NUC" is a common name in beekeeping which is short for the word NUCLEUS. The NUC is an established honeybee colony which has taken it about 6 weeks of work and is now ready for growth during a strong spring nectar flow. Most of the frames are new however are becoming established and It will be necessary to transfer the Nuc hive into into a larger 8 or 10 frame hive in the coming days so please plan your equipment needs accordingly. Each NUC will come in a long lasting corrugated box (that can be used for years) your nuc will have a new laying Queen and the majority of the bees will be from her offspring.


Nuc orders need to be made in advance so that you insure reserving the quantities you need!
