Aims & Standards

Why choose Buckfast you may well ask?

Buckfast bees will develop much larger colonys,over wintering on two Langstroth brood boxes is common, giving them a head start in spring.

MORE BEES = MORE HONEY

Very little or no smoke is needed for colony inspections meaning much less stress on the bees and beekeeper.

INSPECTIONS ARE MADE EASIER

Bees do not run around the frame or drip from the bottom of frames, they just go about thier normal business even the queen can often be seen to continue laying.

FINDING THE QUEEN IS LESS OF A PROBLEM

Buckfast bees are bred to be more resistant to disease

ONE OF THE FIRST AIMS BROTHER ADAM HAD IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE BUCKFAST BEE

These bees will not chase you out of your apiary,BURST your car tyres or force there way into your bee suit.

OUR CHILDREN FEED OUR BEES LIKE PETS OUT OF THIER BARE HANDS

So long as buckfast bees are provided with plenty of space,swarming is much less of a problem.

SWARM CONTROL IS MUCH EASIER TO MANAGE
