NWC Queens

Now taking 2021 Queen Orders

(Prices & details)

We offer New World Carniolan queens for sale starting approximately late April thru August. We are a small queen producer by commercial standards so quantities are limited and our northern climate limits when they can be raised.

Our breeder queens are obtained directly from Sue Cobey’s New World Carniolan Breeding program. These queens have been selected for productivity, rapid spring buildup, overwintering ability, tracheal mite resistance, hygienic behavior, pollen collection, gentle temperament and high brood viability. We have been impressed with their performance and with their calm gentle nature they are a pleasure to work.

See our Queen Orders page for terms and prices. Quantities are limited especially early in the season so order early. Please any questions or to check availability.
