Spring Nucleus colonies should be ready from June onwards, but that is dependent on suitable weather for early queen matings. Please check our blog for regular updates on the development of the nucs. Overwintered Nucleus colonies should be ready in April; depending on early buildup, again please check the blog for updates.

All Nucleus colonies comprise a young mated laying Buckfast Queen marked with the appropriate year colour, 3 to 4 frames containing brood at all stages, with plenty of bees on Hoffman self-spacing frames. There will be adequate stores of pollen and honey in the additional frames sufficient for at least 1-2 weeks to allow for establishment.

Upon collection of your Nuc(s) you have the opportunity to inspect you new colony(s) to satisfy yourself of their quality. Please bring a clean beesuit and any other protective clothing required to complete the inspection.

Nucs may be offered on 14 x 12 National Brood frames. Please contact us to check availability.

Our Nucleus Colonies fully comply with, and exceed DEFRA, NBU and BBKA Guidelines. All our bees are regularly inspected by the Bee Inspector.
Responsibility for the Health and wellbeing of the bees in you Nucleus colony pass to you upon taking possession.

Please note: All deposits are non-refundable unless we are unable to supply your order. All Orders must be paid in full prior to collection. By placing an order you are accepting our terms and conditions. At the time of ordering you will be asked to add a contact telephone number, this is important and will only ever be used to communicate about your order.
