Welcome to Native Irish Buckfast queens and bees

On our scale these bees would score a 9 for docility, our scale would start at 1 , the equivalent to the highest possible score on the AMM scale.
Our own classic Queen mating box, these boxes hold more bees than most mating boxes to insure the young queens are nurtured in the best possible way

Our Irish Buckfast Group will this year offer a limited number of nucleus colonies for sale.

  We are now taking orders for Nuc's for 2018Cool


Each  nucleus will have the following criteria to ensure only top quality nuke's are supplied.

(1) A selected top quality home bred Irish Buckfast Queen (bred this year 2018)

(2) Queen will be marked with correct colour for 2018

(3) Been checked for disease

(4) At least 4 frames with bees on them all

(5) Brood on at least 3 frames

(6) At least one frame of stores

(7) all combs will be in good condition and fitted with 2018 wax

(8) If posted out, a plywood nuke box suitable for postage will be supplied (extra cast)


 (9) We will supply any size of frame to suit you and your hives at no extra cost.








New for 2018

 We thank all our 2017 customers and hope all our queens over wintered wellCoolCool

Our Native Irish Buckfast Queens are bred here in Ireland from several strains that have existed and been bred here for many years.

You do not need to be a member to order Queens from us, we will supply top quality Buckfast queens to all beekeepers.

Requeen your hives in 2018 with our queens and see for your self how much easeir beekeeping can be.Cool

                                       (3) Disinclination to swarm

                                       (4) Hardiness and ability to over winter

                                       (5) Calm Behaviour (they do not run around frames)

    This is only some of the favourable traits we breed for, we do not breed for good temper this comes as standard. Our Irish Buckfast bees already over winter BETER than most other strains but this is one of the only traits we feel we can even more improve on.
