Package Bees For Sale
Package bees are offered for sale for collection at the end of May each season. Made from our own bees and queens we make these packages from 1.5kg of young bees.
Perfect for stocking foundationless hive systems, such as warre and top bar hives, package bees are very versatile. They can also be used for starting bees on completely fresh combs.
Package bees are produced by us only on limited numbers each year as we utilise a significant number of young bees ourselves to stock our own mating nucs for queen rearing. However we are always increasing the number of package bees we produce to help provide a quality source of package bees from the UK and help to reduce reliance on imports of bees generally.
We are not taking pre-orders for packages, availability on Package Bees will be made live on the website in Spring 2022, availability will be dependent on our own needs for bees which we can only assess in spring. Please keep an eye on the website.
Disease Assurance Scheme in Honeybees (DASH)
Northumberland Honey Co are members of the Bee Farmers Association, and are members of the Disease Assurance Scheme in Honeybees ensuring the highest possible quality of bees.
Northumberland is also lucky in that it has one of the lowest rates of notifiable brood disease in the country with both European and American Foulbrood virtually unheard of in our area. You can review this on the disease incidence map on bee base.
Coupled with our closed system of not collecting swarms, buying in bees nor migrating our bees outside of our area we are hopeful to retain this low disease status.
