What makes our queens special?
Our queens are hand-selected from mothers whose performance shines. All our breeder queens go through a rating process where they are evaluated for these qualities;
Our queens are raised in mating nucs that are larger than the industry standard and are left in their mating nucs for a full 21 days. This gives the queens time to fully develop their pheromone and increases acceptance into the hive. We raise our queens in isolated mating yards at 2000 feet, amongst the rolling meadows and oak woodlands on the East side of the Santa Cruz Mountains. They have access to an abundance of natural nectar and pollen, and plentiful drones from hand-selected mother colonies.
Let your queens shine!
