Bees for sale

Looking for honey bees in Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin?

Here are places, that I know of, which are within 60 miles of Beloit WI. I chose Beloit since it sits nicely on the border of IL and WI.

My honey bee farm is within 7 miles of Beloit WI.  I am currently not advertising the sale of bees, since I am not sure how many I will have in the spring to sell.  I plan to ramp up in the next few years to sell about a dozen Nucs each spring.  If you are interested in purchasing a Nuc, send me an email and when spring arrives, and I know how many Nucs are available, I can contact you to see if you are still interested.

This is NOT an endorsement for any of the businesses listed below… just a list.  If you know of others please comment on this post, with their URL, and I will add it to the list.
