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 2019Cool


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 2019)

Each queen is selected for (1) High productivatyCool

                                       (2) Resistance to Disease

                                       (3) Disinclination to swarm

                                       (4) Hardiness and ability to over winter

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

                                      (6) To have a boundless capacity for work in foraging 

                                      (7) To further improve over wintering 


    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.
