Black sheep Honey

Our starter hives last year were were very successful. This picture is showing the hives in late August.  


*Actual results may vary.

There is no argument, this is the best way to start a new beehive, regardless if you are a professional or just getting started.


Each box will contain the following:

  • A 2017 Carniolan queen selected because they are gentle, productive and can overwinter in NY better than other queens. (This queen typically lays 1,000 eggs a day!)
  • 3 Frames with brood - More brood equals more eggs that are about to hatch, making your hive stronger and more successful. 
  • 1 Frame of pollen and honey - because they need to have food. 
  • 1 Frame of foundation - to give them room to expand without wanting to swarm.


Available for pre-order at the following AGWAY stores:
