When I travel north I will meet beekeepers at the following spots. I will call you shorty before my arrival. For a more relaxed method follow my progress north on Sparky's honey and Maple Facebook page.

  • Portsmouth; liquor store parking lot at the traffic circle
  • Kennebunk; I 95 northbound travel plaza. On will be on the south end off to the right
  • Yarmouth; Tourist info center across from Garmin. I will be at the north end
  • Gardiner; Park and ride lot off of 295, exit 49

And of course, you can pick them up here in Hope.

When you order make sure to email me your phone number and desired pickup location at If I do not receive your desired pickup location and phone number I will assume that you plan to pickup in Hope and follow my progress on Facebook. You do not need a PayPal account to order. If you plan to follow me on Facebook let me know, this will eliminate a phone call and speed me along. You can also pick your bees up here in Hope.

For those of you who ordered packages this season. You can go to Sparky's honey and Maple Facebook page. I will post any updates, and post as I travel north with the bees. This will give you up to the moment updates of my expected arrival time at all drop points. You will also receive a phone call prior to my arrival.

This year I plan to have a limited amount of 5 frame nucs available around the middle of May. $165 each. $50 deposit required for each nuc. Nucs come in a non returnable cardboard box. No box deposit required. Contact for these nucs by phone or email is best.

thanks for considering Sparkys!
