And if reading scrolling type makes your eyes hurt, it says:

"Due to extensive colony losses due to several hundred acres of GMO soybeans within flying distance of our colonies, we will not be shipping any packages or queens this year or for the foreseeable future. We were able to deal with the mites and hive beetles but we haven't figured out how to deal with genetically modified crops that are now almost everywhere. This is the worst disaster we have seen in fifty-two years of beekeeping. It is with much regret and sadness that we must close Long Creek. It is very much like losing a child or family member. We will keep everyone posted on this web page. Thank you everyone for your support."

Sad.
