too late this winter for this spring.
We usually start accepting persons for there bee
order on a Thursday onward tell all have arrived.

Often persons are on the phone
with customers when one is calling!
Beekeepers that are driving here
for package pick-up are
on a set schedule. Often the time frame
for scheduled beekeepers coming
can take several days
due to each persons work schedules.
We usually start receiving customers
on a Thursday and continue receiving
buyers deep into the weekend before all can arrive.
Parsons' Gold Apiaries
has the basic Bee Equipment that
beekeepers might need.
Shipping per packages for
Juicetime Apiaries below:
#2 Lb. - $40.00 ea.
#3 Lb. - $42.00 ea.
#4 Lb. - $44.00 ea.
#4 Frame GA Nucs $55.00 - $65,00
Depending on distance.
# 2 lb. packages from GA will not be
in large numbers. I likely will
have about #50 to #100.
I get updates weekly on numbers to
have for beekeepers
All packages will be insured when shipped
if at all possible.
Listings can change without notice
ask when you phone or email this company
if the prices and figures have changed.
This company will do all in their power to get the
order to the P.O. as quickly as possible.
We often have bees to the P.O.
within 4 hours from our
receiving them in hand.
This company can do nothing
once the bees are at the post office.
If you are not satisfied
with your order you must
address questions or concerns
with the Post Office before you
remove the bees or queens.
I would open the queen package(s) at
the post office in front of the teller
so you and that person can see that the
queen(s) are fine or not!
Care for queens and bees
once you leave the P.O.
is extremely important they
don't get too hot or too cold!
Bees are super hard to get
take super care of them!
Parsons' Gold Apiaries
We are also taking orders for the CA packages
for pick-up or ship.
Order and pay in full by a set date in the future
as we get word they are now nearly in hand.
Don't wait to order bees as slots fill up quickly!!!!!
In fall 2013 for spring 2014 bees slots were filling in a few weeks from
being open for customers to buy bees for each load!!!!
Packages coming from CA
Can not say for sure now too early for this group
A. - #2 lb. Package - CA - Italian or Carniolan queen - $
B. - #3 lb. Package - CA - Italian or Carniolan queen - $
C. - # 4 lb. Package - CA - Italian or Carniolan queen - $
If buyer wants a Russian or Buckeye Bell queen instead
the cost will be reflected accordingly.
CA packages have always been a quality product.
My advice for anyone reading this page is to order soon because
each load we can only arrange a specific number of packages.

#4 frame nucs in from GA can be shipped
I am working on seats to ship #3 frame
and #5 frame nucs spring and summer
Until you get word from me these
sizes are pick up only!
Due to massive demands for bees
we might need to make up your
nuc and hand you the queen when you arrive.
With a GA # 4 frame nuc I can not switch out the queen.
If a person would want a different queen in that
particular nuc they would get what ever queen is in the nuc
then they could buy the desired queen in a queen cage.
I often have extra queens here in cages.
The GA packages - 2 Lb. - 3Lb. and 4 Lb.
