Olympia Beekeepers Association Bee Orders

The Olympia Beekeepers Association Board has decided that as of 2019 we are no longer going to facilitate a large bulk order of packages. Instead, we will provide information on where you can purchase packages or nucleus hives. We will also update prices as they are provided as well as any discounts given to OBA Members.

If you would like to be added to the list, please email us at secretary@olympiabeekeepers.org.

These locations are listed in alphabetic order and not by recommendation.

Characteristics of Old Sol Survivor Stock: All Queens are marked to make them easy to find and monitor her performance! Fly at cooler temperatures! Rapid build up of brood in the hive! Excellent honey production! Low mite count! Breeder queens are tested by the Bee informed Partnership! Northern bred for winter hardiness and no Africanized genetics! Selected for hygienic behavior
