about our buckfast honey bees

Deciding which type or race of Honeybee to keep can be confusing, as there is so much conflicting advice available. But it is a choice, and one well worth taking time to consider.

Let me tell you why we chose to work with the “Buckfast”.

The term Buckfast is given to a hybrid bee that is bred using a very specific breeding program, used to fix desirable traits taken from multiple races of Honeybees. This breeding system was developed by Brother Adam, a Benedictine Monk at Buckfast Abbey in Devon.

Our “seed stock”, in other words our Breeding Queens and the Queens that head our Drone producing colonies, come from the most highly regarded Buckfast Breeders in the world. You just can’t get better!

We don’t enjoy working with Honeybees that are defensive and difficult. We don’t think you should either!

So, if want to keep bees that are:

  • Calm and have a low tendency toward stinging
  • Steady on the comb
  • Disease Resistant
  • Hygenic
  • Disinclined to swarm
  • Frugal with winter stores
  • Able to overwinter successfully
  • Capable of rapid spring build up
  • Excellent foragers producing a sizeable honey crop

 

Give our Mated Queens, Nucs and Hives a chance to prove themselves. You won’t be disappointed.
