Saskastraz = $44.75 plus WV 6% Sales Tax

Online ordering is not available. We cannot accept payments over the phone. We accept credit cards at our shop & we can also email you a Square invoice which can be paid online with credit card. Absolutely no holds on queens unless you’ve pre-paid & you must pick your order up immediately when the queens arrive. Queens should be installed ASAP.
The 1st orders we receive in April are usually in high demand. We try to order enough to supply for walk-ins, however, those amounts can sell quickly. It is recommended to prepay/reserve queens.
Please contact us to reserve/pre-pay for orders of 5 queens or more.
Occasionally, we will place orders for Buckfast queens from Ferguson Apiaries in Canada if there is enough pre-orders. We will need advance notice & payment for your order. We will place an order with Ferguson when 10 or more queens with payment are received. Due to import, shipping, & inspection fees, it is not cost efficient for any parties involved for us to order 10 or less queens.
Mite Maulers, Purdue Ankle-biters, and other specialty breeds
If available from breeders, we will place orders for Mite Maulers, Purdue Ankle-biters, and other specialty breeds. Please contact us for availability.
