Brett's Bees works to supply healthy and thriving nuc colonies for individuals looking to get started with bee keeping, or for those looking to expand their beeyard!
We are now taking 2023 Spring Nuc preorders! Contact us if interested.
Standard Nuc orders consist of either one 3 or 5-frame(deep) nuc box with marked, mated queen.
If interested in giving your crops a little boost, feel free to reach out about our pollination services! We will deliver a select number of colonies to your farm/crops during the flowering season to ensure your harvest is bountiful. Fees range from $180-240 per colony depending on distance and length of pollination services.
NOTE: We are not a commercial apiary, so pollination hives are limited.

In Loving Memory of Dr. Carl Jurica
My journey into bee keeping did not start intentionally. Long-time beekeeper,
Dr. Carl Jurica, a close friend, slowly sparked my interest into bee keeping.
During the summer of 2021 Carl and I befriended each other. We would
frequently talk bees during my visits. Topics would range from queen rearing to
honey harvest to pests and illnesses, you name it. Each time I saw Carl I
learned something new about bees and bee keeping. After working with Carl for the
season he suddenly and regrettably passed.
Several months later I was given the opportunity to acquire a number of his
hives. I thought of this as not just a new business opportunity but a way to
honor Carl and to continue his far-reaching legacy.
To all current and future customers, thank you for taking a part in
continuing the legacy of Dr. Carl Jurica.
