 Winter Patties Winter 2020


We are anticipating our Fall 2020 order of winter patties to arrive in mid-November. In 2019 our shipment arrived 11/18. We are expecting this years to align with a similar timeline.

Bees prefer honey over anything as a food source, so there is no need for winter patties until they have depleted their honey stores. Once it gets cold enough and the bees cluster, they will not break cluster to move for food. They move around inside the hive as a cluster to feed off of their stores.
