Welcome to the forum Travdawg  !!

You won't find package bees readily available here. If you have a special reason for wanting a package (eg for populating a top bar hive)  you will have to find a beekeeper who is willing to oblige. Bees usually come in a nucleus box of about 5 frames with Queen, brood , and stores. Putaruru isn't far is it, @dansar might be able to help.

There are five nucleus beehives advertised on TradeMe in the Waikato region.

Become active at your local club & someone might offer you a cheap starter nuc. Or like many you may decide to catch a swarm and requeen if needed

You could post a wanted advert in the classifieds to see if there is anything around in your area
