"Today, our apiary consists of a naturally developed genetic cross between Carnelian, Russian, and Caucasian honey bees that we have produced through selective breeding to promote the traits that we feel meet our needs here in Wyoming. We also guarantee our queens until the end of June and are available for help whenever you may need a hand or a friendly suggestion. - We Succeed When You Do!"
"Unlike most commercial apiaries or 'bee brokers' in Wyoming, we don't send our bees out of state during the Winter for a vacation. Our bees work for a living and our Winter survivor traits are what sets our bees apart, they are truly ranch raised in the the wind and the rain, and the cold and the snow."

Considerations When Buying Bees
Where did the bees originate from, (i.e., are they local)?
Is the Seller a commercial beekeeper, or a bee broker?
Can the Seller produce an Apiary Inspection Report from their State Agency documenting health and compliance?
Have the bees been treated for mites prior to purchase?
What breed(s) of bees are being sold, and why?
Does the Seller guarantee their queens after the purchase has been completed, and if so for how long?
How long have the queens been actively laying eggs?
When were the bees last inspected?
"Whether you buy your bees from us or someone else, be sure to know exactly what you are buying. Inexpensive bees aren't necessarily a bargain, you get what you pay for."
"The experience gathered from books, though often valuable, is but the nature of learning whereas the experience gained from actual life is the nature of wisdom."
