Bee traits to consider:
New World Carniolan- Well known for wintering in the north, smaller winter cluster with fast spring buildup & tracheal mite resistant. Very good honey producers. The New World Carniolan stock is a very gentle, dark colored honey bee and one of the most dependable stocks we have used in our 20 years
NWF Hybrid - Our own stock which include the exceptional brood production of Cordovan Italians as well as improved wintering capabilities of NWC and Buckfast. These very prolific bees often lay 8 to 10 frames of brood during the height of the season. increasing honey and pollen production. These bees are good to work but more "spirited" than our other bees. This stock is bred from survivor stock that come out of winter in the Finger Lakes Region strong and healthy.
Golden Italians - For 13 years we have used Cordovan Italians in our breeding operation to maximize our stocks' production capabilities. Year after year these light golden bees are consistently gentle, lay 9 or 10 frames of brood and are incredible honey producers. In 2011 and 2012, both very difficult year for beekeeping, they held there own through drought, rain and difficulties that impacted other stock. They outlay all other stock we've used and consistently perform. They do need a little more feed for winter but we are so satisfied with this stock and so many great customer reviews we have decided to offer them as an option again this year.
