Our 2024 6 frame overwintered nucs of bees for sale will be established colonies that have survived the previous winter - headed by a proven queen from the year before. The bees are raised local to Cheltenham, in and around the Cotswolds. They are calm and gentle - a pleasure to handle . They produce great honey too.


The honeybees for sale will be in a new, painted Maisemore poly nuc. The nuc will contain 6 self-spacing Hoffman frames - with standard British National dimensions. The frames will have honeybee brood in all stages - this means there will be eggs, larvae and sealed brood. There will also be frames of food/stores. The nuc will have lots of bees. As you can see from the videos, the bees are calm and easy to handle. The proven queen will be marked. The queen will be cliped. If you would prefer not, let Harry know.


Overwintered nucs of bees - ready mid-April/mid-May 2024 - depending on the weather.


All our bees are treated for varroa. We can tell you the treatment we have used. 


Conact Harry here if you have any questions about his bees, his queens or the nuc itself.


If you are a new beekeeper and Harry is delivering your bees to you, he'll be happy to help you install your bees FOC. Once you have your bees you can contact Harry at any time.


If you need any advice on installing your new honeybees in your hive or caring for them afterwards, just let us know.

  • A nuc can be reserved with a non-refundable £65 deposit which you can pay for on this page.  The balance of £245 will be invoiced to you when your bees are ready.

    If you would like to add a feeder to your order (add £20) just let Harry know when you order the bees.

    We offer free delivery (within about 25 miles of Harry's Honey HQ on Cleeve Hill, Cheltenham - just as an idea, this gets to Ross, Witney and Ledbury). Otherwise, it's collection from us.

    Harry will contact you to arrange a convenient time to deliver/collect. Especially as the days get warmer its best for the bees to travel early in the morning or in the cool of the evening.

    Your nucleus of honeybees will be ready to transfer to a full size hive - please make sure you have your own hive ready for them. 

    All our bees are treated for varroa and each nuc is fully inspected by Harry before pick up/delivery. The bees will have been closed up early on the day that you collect them.

    If you have any concerns about your nuc when you get home, just give us a call. 

    Your poly nuc can be used to collect swarms or for splits later on.  If you already have a spare nuc box, choose our "6 frame Correx box" option.
