Italian queen honey bee, open-mated, in shipping cage with attendants.
To ensure the survival of the bees in transit, the only shipping methods available are express options (i.e. Priority Mail Express and UPS Next Day Air). Local pickup is also available for local customers.
Weather can cause delays in shipments. When delays happen, we will contact you with your new shipping date.
All queen shipment orders are F.O.B. It is the responsibility of the customer to file a claim immediately with the USPS or UPS. Please save your Postage confirmation and postage meter sticker to assist the Postmaster with filing a claim. USPS or UPS claims must be filed online. The customer should take pictures of the loss, to help substantiate the claim with the USPS. Additionally, the USPS should scan the package as “damaged in shipment”. We cannot certify or process a claim because we were not there to personally inspect the bee shipment.

As of Monday, July 26 one member of the brotherhood has tested positive for COVID-19 and a good number of others have fallen ill. Therefore Fr. Seraphim has decided to close the monastery to visitors temporarily, and unfortunately we will have to cancel the public celebration of St. Panteleimon's Day on August 8/9.
Because we are very shorthanded, we will also be closing the store through the end of this week. Orders can continue to be placed either online or via phone message, and will be fulfilled as quickly as possible beginning Tuesday, August 3.
Regarding live-streaming, please make note of the abbreviated liturgical schedule for this week.
Thank you for your understanding, and please keep us in your prayers during this time.
