Natural Bee Farm
I am currently taking orders for bees and queen bees to be picked up or shipped in April, May and June.
I have two locations for pick up, one in Georgetown, SC and the other in North Charleston, SC.
Reservations for bees are now booked through the second week of April. I can take reservations for bees for the third week of April and later.
A $110.00 deposit or full payment is required to reserve bees. I take bitcoin, checks or money orders.
Customers who pay with bitcoin will be first on the list.
If I am unable to get to the phone, I am most likely in the bee yard, so leave a message or it would be better if you text me and I`ll be happy to call or text you back.

Conditions and policies.
By using, visiting, or browsing our web site or ordering bees from FastBees.net, you accept and agree to all our conditions and policies that listed below.
We do all we can to ship you a very healthy NUCs, Hives or packages of young bees along with a healthy queen and her attendants.
However, it is the customer's risk after the bees are shipped. Customers who purchase bees from us assume all risks once they are in the hands of USPS & UPS. We cannot refund the cost of the bees or shipping because we shipped a healthy bees & queens. We did our part. If UPS or USPS killed or lost your bees during shipment, you must resolve your loss with these shipping companies. Due to the bee shortage we cannot send a replacement package.
Once the bees are in the customer's hand, we cannot control the environment or management styles which could possibly cause the hive to perish. It is not uncommon for a new package to abscond, which means once they are installed, they completely leave the hive and fly away. Again, this is the customer's loss and we cannot replace or refund packages that was damaged by freight carrier or die. There are too many variables and individual management styles and environmental stresses that are beyond our control.
If UPS or USPS lost or killed your bees, you can file a court claim against those companies.
You can file a court claim against shipper of bees which is FastBees.net or against shipping company which is UPS only in Charleston, SC county. This is the place where the bees were shipped from.
If you are not willing to assume the risk of the bees dying in the mail, which rarely happens but can, then please consider picking up your bees at our apiary.
Once you paid, we start working on your order. It takes time and a lot of work to prepare each order. We make a special bottom on each hive, so the bees would have enough air during the shipping. Also, we make sure the bees have more than enough honey for those days when they will be in transit and for new place. If they don't have enough honey, we`ll feed them. We check each colony to make sure they have a good laying queen, eggs and brood. We are trying to do our best to prepare bees for shipping or pick up, and it takes time, money and much work. The deposit of $110.00 is non refundable, it will cover our work and expenses if you decide to cancel your order later.
