How far are they fRom Chico? I have to go in April to pick up my 4lb package bes from C&F Konhen sp) and Sons. Would be nice to run there. NO the Mann Lake office is in there book. It is one of 3 in California. Hughson CA, Woodland CA, And Bakersfield. They said they have a few things in there office for show. LIke books and Samples of foundations and frames and Hives. And equipment. Our Dadant office is just like the Mann Lake office in Bakersfield. Just a huge warehouse with a a bunch of stuff from the company that you can go and pick up. I have a few things I am going to get from them so it would be a money saver since I have to go and pick up a Tom Turkey for a friend of mine. We get taxes back Feb 1st and I have another 1000.00 to spend on bee stuff. Then that will make my total to about 2500.00 for a 2 hive start up plus extra supers. Plus honey and comb honey supplies plus bees. Then i am set till next season.
