2024 Bee Package Pick Up

We will send out occasional email updates as we get closer to Bee Day.



If you want to support local beekeepers and get package bees for a great price then you found the right place. Here's Why

  • Our Bee Packages are made locally from our bees in Layton, UT and won't been shipped from out of state on a truck for long distance bouncing on a truck to get to you.
  • Check out our Google reviews! We have a strong reputation and we work hard to keep it.
  • You are supporting a local family owned business. We love what we do!
  • You get the support of 2 experienced beekeepers who are willing to answer questions you might have or guide you through any situation you might be stuck on or are unsure about.
  • Free Marked Queen with current years color - Other providers don't offer this. We see the value of having a marked queen especially for beginners. It's very educational to be able to see the queen.
  • Your bees will be treated for varroa mites so your bees can have a nice clean start.


You can't go wrong choosing between a PACKAGE or NUC. But with a package it's fun to see the process and witness the hive grow from nothing into a full strong hive. Or maybe you just need to add bees to a vacant hive from the previous year. Either way,  you will save a little bit of money. Bonus!


All bees are Italian/Cardovan and Carniolan mix. They are bred for their gentleness and honey collecting. Bee Package INCLUDES $5 refundable deposit for bee cage when cage is returned in re-usable condition. Bonus!



What to expect with your Bee Package Orders

  • Packages are usually ready for pick up the first to second full week in April.
  • Weather plays a big part when we will have your bees ready. Delays can be expected during the cold and rain/snowy weather and can postpone the pick up date.
  •  You will receive an email the beginning of April with an update how things are going and how things are looking as far as having your Bee Packages ready and when they can be expected.
  • When we have a good idea on when they will be ready, then you will receive a text with a google form link to sign up for a day and time to pick up your bees at the location you selected. By making this purchase, you agree to subscribe and give us consent to send you a text to sign up for your bee package pick up date. This will be the only time we send you these texts.


We know it is exciting to receive your bees and start the new bee year. Our goal is to make this process as smooth as possible for everyone, and to give you the best experience we can.
