The Bees


Our primary focus is on producing survivor bees for our region.

They are open mated at our Medway and Franklin yards and are a combo of Fergusen Buckfast/ VSH Carniolan, and Minnesota Hygienic overwintered queens .

We work our bees bare-handed for most of the season; therefore, we select our stock for gentle temperament.
