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 2021🙂

          

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 2021)

(2) Queen will be marked with correct colour for 2021

(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 2021 wax

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New for 2019

 We thank all our 2020 customers and hope all our queens over wintered well🙂🙂

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 2021 with our queens and see for your self how much easeir beekeeping can be.🙂 

Reasons to buy Buckfast.

Irish Buckfast queen breeding group web site.

Breeding Better Irish queens for Irish Beekeepers.

We are members of the Federation of Irish Beekeepers

Each queen is selected for (1) High productivaty🙂

                                       (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.
