DEPOSIT/REFUND POLICY: Payment is required for all package bee orders. Payment is 100% refundable within 30 days of order, and 50% refundable until 3 weeks before delivery, at which point it is non-refundable. If you need to cancel your reservation, please let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to re-home your bees and refund your payment, regardless of timeframe.

WE DO NOT SHIP PACKAGE BEES. Packages are for LOCAL PICKUP ONLY at our shop located at 160A Sugar Street, Newtown, CT 06470.
For some suggested suppliers of package bees for shipment, please check the link for "Bees & Queens" in the yellow horizontal strip of our site.
The packages of bees travel here by truck, having been carefully transported directly from the producer. They usually arrive sometime on Friday, and we post hours for pickup on Saturday and Sunday. If the bees arrive ahead of schedule, we also make them available for pickup ahead of schedule.
If you cannot pick up your bees within three days of their arrival, please contact us to make arrangements.
