Mated Queens

Queen bees at Château La Martinette come from the best breeders in Europe. The natural mating takes place in protected settings in the heart of Provence. Our beekeepers manage 1,500 nucleus colonies and each race has its own apiary for mating.

We offer the two mildest races, with a low propensity for swarming, which are best adapted to our regions:

  • Queen from the race developed by Brother Adam (Karl Kehrle)
  • Carniolan Queen

We deliver by post with a shipping number that allows you to track your package. Each queen bee order is shipped in a plastic cage with attendant workers. Orders for several queens are shipped in special aerated boxes.

Our beekeepers are available to answer your questions and provide advice in introducing the bees. The queen bees are available from mid-April to September.

Please contact us now for orders for the 2019 season or for more information.
