2023 Pennsylvania raised Honey Bee Queens. Each queen will be marked and caged in a JZBZ cage, ready for introduction to your hive. These queens are available in limited quantities for local pickup at Firefly Meadows Farm 3075 Anchor Road Washington Boro PA 17582.
We prioritize the following traits when raising queen bees:
- Local Survivability: Every location is unique, and our queens are raised from Pennsylvania Stock to prioritize traits that are important for our location. Learn more about the importance of local queens with this video by veteran beekeepers Michael Palmer.
- Gentleness: Gentle bees make beekeeping more enjoyable and productive. We select colonies that are gentle and easy to work to raise queen bees from.
- Honey Production: Productivity matters, we prioritize hives that produce surplus honey and are highly productive when producing our queen bees.
Enjoy the peace of mind of our 30 day money back guarantee on all of our queen bees. If you are unsatisfied with your queen for any reason, please return your queen cage, let us know your concerns and we will provide you a full refund.
