I’d like to introduce myself, I’m Scott Ehrenfried with Blue Ridge Bees. We currently have Bee Yards located west of Vera VA in Appomattox, VA and in Poquoson, VA.  Please consider contacting us should you ever need Mated Queens or Queen Cells. Should your club members wish to place a “Club Order” special pricing can be arranged.

 If you’re looking for gentle, easy to work bees, we have the Mated Queens that will produce them. Gentle bees mean less protective clothing and a more enjoyable bee keeping experience.

Our queens are bred from our overwintered master hives and are great producers.

Dark Carniolan Queens are available though the supply is limited.

Scottsville Supply Co

I wanted to make a quick introduction of my new store in Scottsville, the Scottsville Supply Co. LLC which we opened this past November We are a small bee supply store with a storefront and website ( We are primarily a Mann Lake dealer though we are expanding our product line each week as the spring nears. We typically announce newly arrived products on our Facebook page, and they are immediately added to our online store. By mid-March you will hopefully find everything you might need to start, grow, or maintain your apiary.

We also have plenty of packages left for pre-ordering. Our customer pickup date is on or about May 5th. The bees are sourced through Rossman Apiaries in Georgia. Ordering can be done in-store (Tues-Sat) or 24/7 on our website:

Prices are as follows:

Unmarked Queen Packages (quantity 1 – 4): $115/each

Marked Queen Packages (quantity 1 – 4): $120/each

7% Discounts on orders of 5 or more packages**

**Packages must all be either “Marked” or “Unmarked”, mixing is not available for the discount. Also, I ask that individuals please do NOT go in together on a single order to receive a discounted price. The discount is intended for individual beekeepers buying bulk quantities their own apiaries.

I would be grateful if you shared our information with your association. I am just a backyard beekeeper myself and a member of the Buckingham Bee Club. I live in Scottsville and thought our area needed a bee supply store to make products and educational resources more accessible. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have in regards to our store.
