Our premium Monarch butterfly kit, available in very limited quantities starting in Early Summer (Pre-order is available starting in March). Each kit comes with two Monarch caterpillars (guaranteed to reach adulthood) in a large enclosure, instructions for care, and a milkweed plant that can be planted after release and may attract other Monarchs and butterflies all summer. Butterfly coloring pages are available upon request at pickup.

It takes about 8 days on average for the caterpillars to reach the chrysalis stage, and another 8-10 days for them to emerge as butterflies. You can plan on the whole process taking 2.5 - 3 weeks from start to finish. If timing is a concern, you may place your order and pick it up later this Summer (just let us know in the comment box as you check out)!
