California Imported Carniolan Queen | Olivarez
Olivarez has been raising queens for more than 50 years in Northern California, where the low humidity; warm, gravelly soil; and rich, natural food supply create optimal conditions. Shielded from the wind by trees and surrounded by thousands of acres of blooming clover, mustard, and other nectar-producing plants, their mating yards give their queens a strong start in life. Carniolan queens from California are top-notch honey producers and slow down brood production so they are conservative with feed in the winter.
Due to ongoing global shipping issues, international cargo flights aren't being booked in advance. This means that confirmation on flights could be short notice. Bulk orders will have the option of arranging pick up at either the airport or at our warehouse location in Dufresne. Small orders will be available for pick up in Dufresne on the day of arrival. Queens are required to be picked up 1-2 days after arrival to optimize survival and to avoid forfeiture of the non-refundable livestock purchases.
These queens are reared in California to supply northern genetic queens to the Canadian market before the domestic stock is available. Thus giving a boost to early-season productivity, and apiary profitability.Posters, Prints, & Visual Artwork
