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 beekeeping experience.
Our queens are bred from our overwintered master hives and are great producers. All queens are local (to Appomattox, VA) Free Range Mated Italian or Dark Carniolan Queens and come marked. These Gentle strains of bees are raised on all natural, small cell, chemical free comb and have been inspected and certified by the Virginia Dept of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
Queens are available for purchase on an as available basis, call, text or email for current availability.
Queens are available for pickup on Sundays from 11am to 5 pm at our Appomattox, VA location, a pickup reservation is required.
