The EC has voted to provide 350 packages and 55 nucs in 2017. That is a substantial expansion over 2016 which was 270 packages and 30 nucs. These will be sold on a first come / first served basis to members and non-members. Our treasury will make $5 per. Exact pricing is not yet known, but when it is, the sales will begin on our website.
We contacted and considered:
Ale Chemist Apiaries
Lazy Bee Ranch
We have chosen to use Lazy Bee Ranch for reasons related to delivery process. We were very impressed with the emphasis on transport safety, customer service and price competitiveness.
Delivery location (Thank you, Kevin Kerst):

Includes full pull through driveway for an 18-wheeler, adequate parking, covered garage bay, and enough room for members to drive through the parking area while picking up bees. Volunteers will bring your bees to your car. You don’t even need to get out. Street parking is eliminated.
