Light Valley Chilean Packaged Bee – Victoria Pickup (March 17th)


Note: this item is pick-up only. If you presently have items in your cart which you want shipped, and then add this item, the cart system will assume all items will be for pick-up. If you want to order items to ship as well as reserve packages, we recommend placing two separate orders.


Light Valley is a relatively new supplier for us. They run a very tight operation. Last year was our first year offering their packages. Overall, we were happy with their performance, with many customers reported they performed very well on honey production and contended well against wasps. We will learn more about what to expect from them year-to-year and look forward to hearing your feedback!


They are a hybrid Carniolan, so you will see some of the same traits in these queens as you do in the Aratakis, in particular they should perform similarly in overwintering ability and honey production. Light Valley has their own in-house breeding program, so you typically get very similar traits through all queens. Light Valley packages come delivered in  box style packaging. Installation can be easy with these, and we will provide you with instructions on how to do so.


These packages will be available for pick-up on March 17th between 10am-5pm. Almost all of our packages have been reserved, so reserve now! Packages are available for pick-up only. We DO NOT ship packages.
