Native queens available for June

I should have queens available by the end of June, weather permitting, and am taking orders now.

I graft all the queens myself from my own Amm stock.

    Hi Jon,
    You want cash upfront or just a booking for now?

      Hi Andy
      Best to pay now as I will be delivering in the order they are paid up and I am getting quite a few orders in already.

    Hi Jonathan
    I will be looking for about 4 queens this year. Let me know how much they are and I’ll drop the dosh around. I cannot get to the BBKA AGM this pm due to a son’s wedding aftermath but in response to your earlier request for committee volunteers I’m happy to help if needed or if you’re stuck for a name for the committee.
