Trait Selection

Our breeding is based on trait selection rather than attempting to breed a specific race. We are focused on selecting for:

1) Survival of the fittest; early pollen gathering and build up. Grafting from colonies that are treatment free and show mite resistance.

2) Honey Production; our highest yielding colonies are brought to our mating yard.

3) Gentleness; rated on a 5 point scale. Any aggressive, running on comb, intense robbing traits are not tolerated. These queens are culled. Our bees are very gentle.
