Organic Rye, flash sale
I have acquired a 50 lb. bag of organic rye flour by ordering accident. Best price I find for this online is $1.33\lb. Selling in 1 lb. increments for $1\lb. 20% off if you buy 5 lbs. at a time. You aren't likely going to find a better price. If you like rye bread, this is a great opportunity. It will keep for a long time in the freezer, so stock up.
Get started with bees!
I purchased a ton of used beekeeping equipment from a retiring beekeeper. I have approximately 50 wooden nucs(4 frame) available at $10 ea. without frames or foundation. Frames with or without foundation and some with already drawn comb available from $2 to $10 ea. I also have some extra deeps and honey supers available either with or without frames and foundation. Prices vary. Ask if you have something you need. Some honey supers even available with comb. I have brood transport boxes as well as many other miscellaneous items like feeder jars and queen excluders screened bottoms and covers to clear out of the garage. I will be selling established nucs and full hive setups including bees this spring, but get your orders in now before I sell out. These will be available in any combination of boxes to suit your budget and your needs. They can even include a metal base as pictured if you'd like, but I need time to get them built. Bee prices not set from the suppliers yet, but orders will be due prepaid by mid-January. Early Nucs will be about $120, and established nucs in May\June will run about $165
Last call for 2017 bees
The 3 Nucs hives are available at $155 until the 24th of June. Saturday morning they will be installed in hives and no longer available as Nucs
