While we wait to integrate our payment gateway, please use the form below to reserve your bees.  We will then send you a PayPal invoice for £25 per NUC ordered as a non-returnable deposit. It doesn't matter if you don't have a PayPal account, as you can still use the link on the invoice to pay normally, with a debit or credit card.

When your bees are nearly ready, we'll contact you via email and arrange a date and time for your to collect them. Alternatively, we can arrange delivery, for the fees already mentioned. During 2015, our usual courier (Parcel Force) are no longer able to accept live bees for transport.  However, we have tested a specialist, DEFRA registered, livestock transporter and are happy to continue to send bees via this method.  Although it is no longer a guaranteed overnight service, we are happy with the welfare of the bees during their journey, receiving the care that they need from experienced couriers.  Bees are able to be send to any part of the British mainland, with the exception of the north of Scotland.  Delivery to most of England, incurs a tariff of about £45, increasing in increments to £75 the further away you are.  This is the cost price and is subject to confirmation for 2018, but is unlikely to change much.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure you order the correct NUC for the hive you want to keep your bees in.  For example, if you have a BS National or WBC hive, choose a standard NUC.  If you have a Flow Hive, choose a Langstroth NUC.  If you're not sure, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please be patient

Please bear with us while we continue to develop this website for the 2015 season. We will be offering locally bred (Sussex & Surrey, UK), 6 frame, British standard NUCs, in a poly NUC hive, which are fully FERA compliant.
