All our nuclei come supplied on 5 / 6 British standard national frames. They contain a family of bees and a Mated Buckfast queen which is marked to the year accordingly (2020 Blue / 2021 White). Our breeders produce Buckfast queens for our nucs using genetic principles. Special breeders of desired lines are selected for hygienic behaviour from amongst the best breeder colonies; those that have proven to be productive and display all desired characteristics. These are not only some of the best nucs in the UK they are some of the most placid and productive bees you will ever handle!
All nucs exceed Fera Guidelines, see here. We are fully DASH Accredited suppliers.
