We all know PACKAGES are going to be over the $100 mark this spring. Is a NUC a viable option at or about the same price? Andy Miksa - "local" / Florida commercial beekeeper has expressed some interest in putting together NUCS for interested local beekeepers and bringing them up with him this spring. He has a "base" established in the Mt. Calvary area. If you're interested in exploring this as an OPTION - contact him directly at email@example.com or 352-348-4002.
