Wolf River Honey breeds Russian Honeybees which are one of the hardiest, hygienic, and high producing type of bees. Russian bees are especially hardy against disease and other harmful environmental factors.
In the spring of each year, we sell nucs (a nucleus of bees with a laying queen) to others in the area who would like to begin keeping hives. There is a waiting list, so call early to get on the list. It is also advisable that you attend the Short Course offered by the Memphis Area Beekeepers Association if you are just beginning your beekeeping journey.
We sell five-frame nucs (half hives) with a laying queen. Nucs are delivered from spring to early summer, depending on the weather. They are delivered in the order that reservations were made.
There is a waiting list for our nucs, and you must get on the waiting list starting in November of each year. We sell out every year, so do not delay. A nonrefundable deposit is required at the time of reservation.
For questions, including pricing, or to reserve a nuc, please fill out the form on our Contact Us page.
