Nuclei Colony Orders-2024

As registered Ontario Queen Breeders and members of both the Ontario Resistant Honey Bee Selection Program (ORHBS) and the Ontario LOW VARROA GROWTH (LVG) project our team of apiarists produces locally adapted queens each week that are bred from our gentle hygienically & LVG tested and overwintered stock.

Our team focuses our breeding on honey production, gentleness, varroa resistance and hygienic behavior. Our main queen breading yard is part of the LVG project conducted by the Ontario Tech-Transfer Program (TTP). Our stock is proven extra hardy as our breeding yard is located on the top of a hill on the OakRidges Moraine in a very windy location. Temperatures and wind speeds in our bee yard are much more extreme than most other parts of Southern Ontario. This means that Circling Hawk Queens that survive the windy winters on our farm need to be extra hardy!
