Where to Buy Bees

We have many great sources for locally raised bees and businesses that bring bees in from out of the state. Cut out the cost of shipping by contacting these members of the New Mexico Beekeepers Association: Most only have bees at certain time's during the year and do not have bees for sale at all times.
