      Try Tom Fifer – 795-1898

    • David says:

      Tom has good bees if he gets any nucs available for sale. There are 3 other people who might have them too. RD, Kenny, Wilhelm. Go to a Richmond, East Richmond or even a Rockwood bee meeting to get to know them and ask them.
      Do yourself a favor, just say no to package bees. The bees are not as good and the population is slower to build up. Just because they are available sooner doesn’t make up for the fact you get no eggs or larvae when you buy a package. Support the local guy, not the factory.

  8. Jenn Oster says:

    We have land in the Montpelier region available for someone who wants to keep bees. We are interested in the benefits of bees (as in what they can do for our flowers and garden and maybe a jar or two of honey) but have too much going on in our lives to actually be active bee keepers. If this sounds like an opportunity you would be interested in, let me know! Email me at Thanks!

    Looking for wax to make body products, would live a local to our area. Pls contact at


    Available are brand new, unassembled, complete hives. All you’ll need are the bees (which I can also help with)! This set-up includes a total of FOUR complete boxes- most you see offered include only one or two, which will NOT get you through the first year. These are 10-frame boxes with two deep brood chambers and two medium supers included. These boxes are precision milled, with uniform interlocking finger joints for strength. They have pre-drilled holes for nailing to prevent splitting during assembly. The handholds are taper cut for an easy grip.The pack comes with 40, N style frames, which the foundation slides in and requires no wedge-nailing. These are heavy, ½ inch-thick frames which are made with a slotted top-bar and grooved bottom and end bars. Included are 20 medium sheets and 20 sheets of deep wax foundation with incorporated support wiring. The bottom boards are ‘integrated pest management’ bottoms that are screened and include a slide-in mite count tray. This pack comes with a vented wooden inner-cover (which helps with winter moisture issues). The top is a durable lifetime plastic outer cover. This cast cover is one-piece that is rot, termite, ant and weather proof. The package also includes a wooden entrance reducer and a Boardman entrance feeder. This feeder is a lifetime, plastic entrance feeder that comes with a punched metal, quart jar lid. The feeder allows you to see your feed levels and refill without disturbing the bees. The complete package is available for $245 (tax included). Let me know of any other equipment needs you have and I will be glad to get you prices!

    I will have a very limited number of 3 pound packages available the SECOND WEEK OF APRIL for $120. They come with queens that have a guaranteed brood-pattern and are open-mated with the Italian and Carniolan genes.

    I am located in Chesterfield near Hull Street and Chippenham and have been in the bee business since the early 70s.

    Thanks for helping to keep honeybees around; Our lives depend on them!!

    Hi there,
    A friend of mine is looking to get ahold of some beeswax for an art project. She says she doesn’t need it to be filtered or free of other particulates. I’m posting to see if anyone might have some available that she would be able to make use of. Thank you all for your time, and your service to the bees.

  29. David Jaroneski says:

    Looking for a queen and maybe a frame of brood.
    After 13 years of keepin’, it looks like I will hiveless soon. I have a nuc size box with 2 frames of adult bees and some food and that is it.
    A queen might be enough. Prefer Russian or Carniolan, but will take whatever is available.
